The Analog Devices MAX25432B integrates a USB PD AFE, which supports the USB-IF Type-C Port Controller Interface (TCPCI) specification and can interface with any I2C master in the application. Meanwhile, the MAX25432A provides configuration channel (CC) signal pass-through protection for an external USB PD controller. G-suffix devices include intelligent detection and protection to avoid high short-circuit currents flowing from the car battery through the cable shield to ground during fault events, thus preventing car module damage.
The MAX25432 is housed in a small, 6mm x 6mm, 40-pin TQFN-EP package and requires very few external components. The MAX25432 evaluation (EV) kit and collateral provide a convenient platform to the design engineer for rapid evaluation with reduced test and firmware development time.
