Integrated a very low-power USB 2.0 transceiver specifically optimized for iDevice Accessory.

Support charging mode detection compatible with specifications from Apple, USB BC1.2 and USB Type-C. During data transfer, an iDevice can be simultaneously charged from a USB port or a power adapter at the maximum supported charging current.

Capable of operating flash media cards at different frequencies for Read and Write. This patent-pending technology guarantees the best performance of Read and Write while meeting the MFi requirement of the maximum current limit.
