The SM5428 integrates the company’s most efficient converter with the highest output charger current to date. It reaches a peak efficiency of 98 percent and a maximum output current of 8 A to support 35 W of charging power. It also integrates 10-bit ADC to measure the VBUS input voltage, VBAT output voltage, current and die temperature. Furthermore, the serial I 2 C interface and numerous battery protection schemes help minimize heat dissipation while doubling the power, thereby reducing costs for designers. This allows for an efficient, safe and cost-effective solution for fast charging in consumer applications that are taking full advantage of the latest USB Type-C PD3.0 standard.

“The introduction of SM5428 underscores Silicon Mitus’s long term commitment to delivering innovation in the computing and consumer applications within the USB Type-C ecosystem,” said Gianfranco Scherini, VP of Business Development of Silicon Mitus based in Cupertino, California. “The device is a recent addition to our current line of USB Type-C compatible products, which also include Type-C CC controllers, OVP protections and eMarker ICs.”
