The automotive manufacturers are working towards enhancing sophisticated designs and technologies that enable better vehicle-user connectivity by integrating all the control units to one infotainment system. This key feature with high-level intelligence and competency plays an important role with an increase in demand in the production process of the automotive industry. This paper proposes a unique design of USB smart charger module that is designed in a way to fit into limited space in a front panel of the vehicle. The specific design methodology of the DC-DC SMPS buck converter with the protection circuits which serves as the important section of the smart charger is explained. The module is designed with both single and double port that are identical to each other. Each of these models provides effective connectivity of devices in the vehicle network with secured over-current, over-voltage and short circuit protection circuitry. The configuration of controllers and connectors used is implemented in Altium. The functionality of the system designed is examined and verified in TINA-TI tool.
