Compact chip provides comprehensive protection for USB Type-C ports

The TCPP01-M12 enables system designers to quickly and safely replace older USB Type-A or Type-B ports with the latest USB technology. By implementing protection with the TCPP01-M12, OEMs can maintain the safety and reliability of products featuring the latest high-speed and high-power connector interface.

The STMicroelectronics TCPP01-M12 is a protection device for USB Type-C® ports.

Features provided by the TCPP01-M12 include protection against a defective power adaptor, to prevent damage to the device if a faulty power supply applies the wrong power profile. The product also provides short-circuit protection between the power bus pins and configuration channel (CC) lines.

The TCPP01-M12 is suited to the protection of 5 V-only connections managed by general-purpose microcontrollers such as STM32 devices. It can also work with the 20 V/100 W USB Type-C Power Delivery controller integrated in the STM32G0, STM32G4, STM32L5 and STM32U5 MCUs.

The TCPP01-M12 can be used to protect consumer device applications, and can support the programmable power-supply feature of the USB Power Delivery 3.0 standard.

Supplied in a 12-lead QFN package, the TCPP01-M12 measures 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm x 0.9 mm.
