With the powerful hardware and software feature sets, UPD350 enables the system designers to utilize the MCU resources in a more reasonable and efficient way, which can simplify the system design in building differentiated applications and shorten the TTM (Time To Market).
"Selecting RISC-V as the MCU of UPD350 gives us a new degree of freedom to support future innovative applications, such as protocol upgrade, power management, multi-protocol, multi-port and multi-application extension, etc. which can bring add-on value to our customers" Carter Huang, Founder and CEO of UWE: "We played with RISC-V for over years on FPGA platform, the test results show that RISC-V instruction set is stable and reliable. In addition, as an open ISA, RISC-V has neither development license fee nor distributed license fee, which can help us build cost competitive product."
"UWE is a leading supplier of USB PD/TYPE-C chip solutions and dedicates in building open platforms and differentiated application design concepts. We selected UWE first generation PD chipset - UPD300 couple years ago to power our mini printer, which has been in mass shipment. It's stable and highly efficient in power delivery. Now we are evaluating UPD350 as our next generation mini printer power solution, we hope to integrate more functionalities into UPD350 to reduce the product BOM and size, which is the key for the mini printer." Chuntao Wang, CTO of SNBC commented.
