Infineon Technologies USB Type-C™ EZ-PD PMG1 MCU Family

Infineon Technologies USB Type-C™ EZ-PD PMG1 Family are high-voltage USB Type-C Power Delivery (PD) microcontrollers (MCUs). The Infineon Technologies USB-C EZ-PD PMG1 chips feature an Arm® Cortex®-M0/M0+ CPU, USB Type-C PD controller, and analog and digital peripherals. The devices are designed for embedded systems that transfer power through high-voltage USB Type-C PD ports, enhancing control capabilities.
