USB Type-C power delivery (PD) is gaining popularity across applications and markets, including in automotive. USB ports have become an expected standard in most car models, and are typically expected to offer both charging and data functionality. USB Type-C improves on older USB designed by offering a smaller, reversible port for easy plug-in and double the transfer speed of USB 3.0. USB PD protocol enables USB Type-C to deliver up to 100W of power, which is leading to rapid adoption in new products. However, automotive USB Type-C designs must still meet strict automotive safety standards such as EMC and thermal regulations. Each new feature added to the latest vehicles also adds design complexity, and puts space at a greater premium to ensure comfort and convenience for the driver and passengers.
