Parade Technologies in Taiwan has developed a single chip a USB 3.2 Hub with dual USB Power Delivery 3.0 controllers and integrated DisplayPort 1.4a to HDMI 2.0 converter.
The PS188 is the first chip following Parade’s 2020 acquisition of Fresco Logic and combines Parade’s video expertise with Fresco’s USB Hub and Power Delivery technologies.
The upstream facing port of the PS188 supports USB 3.2 (Gen 2x1) and DP Alternate Mode while downstream ports offer HDMI 2.0, two USB 3.2 (Gen 2x1) ports as well as an additional USB 2.0-only port. The two integrated Power Delivery controllers provide full PD 3.0 functionality to the upstream port and one downstream USB Type-C port.
“PS188 is a unique product that demonstrates Parade’s commitment to expanding our roadmap to address a broader application space,” said Jimmy Chiu, Executive VP of Marketing at Parade Technologies. “The high level of integration of the PS188 significantly simplifies the design of dongles, mobile docks, and other innovative products, offering improved time-to-market for our customers.”
The PS188 joins Parade’s PS186 DP to HDMI protocol converter, the FL5500 USB 3.2 hub and the FL7112 USB Type-C PD 3.0 Controller.
The PS188 is currently sampling with production to follow later this year. It is available in an 8mm x 12mm 100-pin QFN package.
