Fresco Logic Achieves Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4 Certification
Release Date : September 22 , 2017
 

Portland, Oregon, September 19, 2017. Fresco Logic, Inc., a leading provider of USB I/O connectivity ICs, today announced that its Panther Creek™ based FL7103 PD3.0 Controller is one of the industry’s first to achieve the Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4 certification after completing testing at Granite River Labs (GRL), a global leader in engineering services and test solutions for connectivity.

Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4 supports key features such as USB Power Delivery’s Programmable Power Supply (PPS). A power supply’s output voltage can be programmatically adjusted in small increments (20mv) over its advertised range from 3v to 21v. It also supports current fold back up to 5A, providing constant current charging. This enables a smart phone or device to charge up to 50% in just 15 minutes. Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 4 also adds various safety enhancements and allows for cooler charging. The Panther Creek™ FL7103 PD3.0 Controller is a highly integrated solution with low BOM cost, low power, and up to two ports. The integrated MCU and embedded FW storage along with field programmability makes survivability a key feature as the PD specs evolves. The Panther Creek™ technology has been widely adopted and tested for PD charging and power bank applications.

“GRL is the industry leader in compliance testing with a proven track record for USB PD and Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ verification. We are excited to work with GRL to achieve the Qualcomm® QC4 certification for our Panther Creek™ based FL7103 PD controller,” said Tom Burton, Senior VP Engineering at Fresco Logic. “Our customers can immediately benefit from the speed, reliability, safety and consistency of QC4 by implementing our certified controller chip into their products.”
