    The USB-UART LP Bridge Controller is the latest addition to Cypress’s family of Full-Speed USB Controllers. The CY7C65213 controller provides a single USB-to-UART channel, with industry’s lowest power consumption in stand-by mode (5 uA).

    The CY7C65213 controller integrates Battery Charging Detection logic compliant to USB-IF Battery Charging specification ver. 1.2 (to detect the source of power on the USB port). The controller features up to 8 pins for GPIO and is available in 32-pin QFN package. The controller is USB-IF certified with TID# 40860041.

    CY7C65213 is a fully integrated USB-to-UART bridge that provides a simple method to upgrade UART-based devices to USB with a minimal number of components. CY7C65213 includes a USB 2.0 Full-Speed controller, a UART transceiver, an internal regulator, an internal oscillator, and a 512-byte flash.

    Key Applications: Portable medical devices (like blood-glucose meters), Point-of-sales terminals, Serial Cables (including USB-to-UART and RS232 cables) and many other applications requiring USB connectivity.
