Genesys Logic, Inc., a leader in high-speed I/O communications, will display its new USB 3.0 solutions during CES 2010 in early January.
Taipei, Taiwan -- December 7, 2009 -- GL3310 USB 3.0 to SATA Bridge Controller and GL3520 USB 3.0 Hub Controller will be on display during CES 2010. GL3310 is a highly integrated USB 3.0 to SATA 3Gb/s bridge controller, which includes self-developed USB 3.0 SuperSpeed transmitter/receiver physical layer (PHY), USB 2.0 High-Speed PHY, and Serial ATA (SATA) PHY. It can perform fast transmission rate and high compatibility with various USB hosts and commercial SATA devices. GL3310 is especially designed for cost-efficient solution; it helps customers easily design their own products with few efforts. Moreover, GL3310 provides two SPI interfaces, PWM controls, watchdog timers, UART monitoring interface, and various general purposes I/Os (GPIO).
GL3520 is a highly-compatible, high performance USB 3.0 Hub controller, which integrates Genesys Logic own design USB 3.0 PHY as well. It supports SuperSpeed, Hi-Speed, and Full-Speed/Low-Speed USB connections and is fully backward compatible to all USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 hosts. GL3520 also can support fast charging function (compliant to USB Battery Charging Specification rev1.1) and inherits Genesys Logics cutting edge technology on better cost structure and lower power consumption design. When operates in SuperSpeed mode, GL3520 supports U0, U1, U2 and U3 power states. When operates in USB high-speed/full-speed mode, GL3520 supports functional and suspend power states.
With technical experience substantially accumulated from independently-developed USB 2.0 PHY to USB 3.0, GENESYS Logic also possessing cost advantage, which is able to rapidly respond and satisfy customers requirements in adjustment and modification of products. Designed to match applications of USB 3.0, the specifications of the third-generation SATA interface deserve to be highly expectative due to a hard discs transfer rate increased to 6Gbps in favor of complete development of an external hard discs effects. The achievements of USB 3.0 related products under development of GENESYS Logic are expected to be presented in the next year.
The International CES 2010 will be held from January 7 to 10 in Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). Genesys Logics booth location: South Hall 3 (upper level), USB TechZone #30769.
