I’m proud to report Synopsys is the first and only company to demonstrate a real USB 3.0 Host and USB 3.0 Device working with a real MIPI M-PHY and not only demonstrating traffic, but demonstrating how we can pass the tests run by the standard USB Compliance Verifier (USBCV) 3.0.
Before we begin, remember that SSIC is USB 3.0 SuperSpeed InterChip. It allows for the use of USB 3.0 inside the box, and on the circuit board. Not external physical connectors. All on PCB using FR4 traces of up to 10cm long. SSIC uses a MIPI M-PHY so the power consumption is between 40-80% lower than a standard USB 3.0 PHY while still providing a throughput
The USBCV tests are used to test USB 3.0 Hosts and Peripherals for compliance.
