USB Power Delivery IP
USB Power Delivery is the new standard for powering consumer electronic devices through USB data cabling. Since the technology drives up to 100 Watts, many more devices, such as external disk drives, Notebooks, and Tablets can now be powered through USB, without other power connections.
Obsidian has the most mature USB Power Delivery IP:
- Type-C Cable marker chips.
- Silicon proven AFE/Modem IP.
- RTL / C code implementation of phy and policy layers.
- IP demonstration & development board.
- Support for USB PD over Type-C Cables
With first USB Power Delivery silicon demonstrated in November 2011, Obsidian Technology offers the industries first, and most complete set of USB Power Delivery IP. This includes, transceiver chip, protocol layer, and device policy technology. In addition, demonstration, and development boards are available for product evaluation and customization. See a quick demo here.
We provide either source or object level Power Delivery IP. For source IP, we provide much more than the conventional "black box" IP model. Rather, an option to own and customize the technology.
Fast Turn Mixed Signal Design Services
Obsidian provides a wealth of experience in mixed signal CMOS technology, with consulting services are an ideal, cost effective, solution for short and medium team mixed signal projects, on-site or off-site.
The cost of CMOS MPW runs in the 0.18µ to 0.35µ technology range is now as little as $5000. Obsidian has a demonstrated capability to produce low cost small quantity mixed signal parts in these technologies.
The capability to produce low cost mixed signal parts is an ideal complement to high complexity digital FPGA and software based low volume prototyping technologies.
