Cypress Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) has expanded its market-leading USB product portfolio, adding a unique family of USB-Serial bridge controllers. The new CY7C6521x family is the first to provide dual-configurable serial channels for UART/SPI/I2C communication along with industry-leading CapSense capacitive touch-sensing technology, enabling flexible design of human interface solutions. Cypress provides proprietary drivers to support multiple operating systems, adding to the design flexibility of the controllers. The family is also the first to integrate efficient battery-charge detection compliant to Version 1.2 of the USB-Implementers Forum (USB-IF) Battery Charging specification. Features include:

  • Industry’s lowest power consumption of 5 uA (standby current).
  • CY7C65211 and CY7C65215 offer single- and dual-configurable serial channels, with each capable of UART, I2C, and SPI communication.
  • CY7C65213 provides a low power USB-to-UART bridge controller.
