(High Speed USB Bridge with
The FT233HP/FT232HP is a Hi-Speed USB
device with Type-C/PD 3.0 controller IC that
fully supports the latest USB Type-C and Power
Delivery (PD) standards enabling support for
power negotiation with the ability to sink or
source current to a USB host device. The USB
bridge function delivers 1 independent channel
compatible with the FT232H – Single Hi-speed
USB to multipurpose UART/FIFO solution. The
FT233HP/FT232HP has the following advanced
Supports PD Specification 3.0.
2 USB PD 3.0 Port Support. Port 1 supports Dual
Role Swap Function while Port 2 supports sink
mode with charging function through to Port 1
(FT233HPQ and FT233HPL only).
Supports 5V3A, 9V3A, 12V3A, 15V3A, 20V3A and
more PDOs as sink or source.
Type-C/PD Physical Layer Protocol.
PD policy engine using 32-bit RISC controller with
8kB data RAM and 48kB code ROM.
PD mode configuration through external EEPROM.
Options to use external MCU controlling PD policy
through I2C interface.
