The EZ-PD Barrel Connector Replacement (BCR) controller is a USB-C Power Delivery solution dedicated to power sink applications. The BCR controller acts as a Up Facing Port (UFP) and interoperates with any USB-C Down Facing Port (DFP) or Dual-Role Port (DRP) for establishing a USB-PD contract. The BCR controller can be fully configured by hardware using pin-strapping, or by software using Host Processor Interface (HPI) commands from an external I2C master (e.g. MCU).The EZ-PD BCR HPI Utility is a GUI-based application that guides users through the process of configuring the BCR controller using HPI. The utility allows users to:
Evaluate the usage of HPI using the EZ-PD BCR Kit and a Windows-based PC.
Select and configure the desired BCR controller settings using HPI that overrides the preset hardware configuration on the BCR Kit.
Monitor the real-time status of USB-C connection, Power source capabilities, USB PD power contract, VBus voltage, etc.
