General Description

The RTS5441E is an advanced Type-C Power Delivery Controller that integrates all Type-C related hardware and firmware. The hardware integrates the Configuration Channel (CC) logistics, including the bus voltage detectors, Rp/Rd resistors, and internal power switches with overcurrent protection to supply VCONN 5V. The RTS5441E also integrates a low insertion loss and return loss 4 to 2 channels mux switch. This mux switch’s bandwidth is over 10Gbps and it can contribute to Type-C plug flipping operations. The RTS5441E also integrates a 5 to 3.3V LDO regulator and an internal oscillator.

These integrated hardware blocks can be applied in various applications and dramatically reduce the system BOM cost. The firmware inside the RTS5441E supports USB Type-C Specification Release 1.2. The RTS5441E supports Type-C current mode selection via GPIO configuration. The polarities of VBUS_EN and OCP_DET are also configurable by external pull-up or pull-down resistors. It is easy to be used for USB3.1 gen1 and gen2 Type-C downstream facing ports that need orientation detection and switching.

The RTS5441E adopts an industry standard 24-pin QFN 4mm*4mm Green package.
