Hsinchu, Taiwan – June 22, 2006 --
Faraday Technology Corporation (TAIEX: 3035), a leading ASIC and IP provider, today announced its USB2.0 High-Speed i 480Mbit/sec j OTG Physical-Layer (PHY) IP and Controller IP have successfully passed the compliance tests in the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). Faraday's USB OTG solution, formally released in 2004, features small die size and ultra low power consumption, and it has been integrated in several successful ASIC projects.
As an IP and customized ASIC service provider, Faraday has been putting extra efforts in defining the IP architecture, so as to improve design flexibility, reliability and reusability. More importantly, Faraday is committed to porting standard interface IP to advanced manufacturing process and to reducing the IP size and power dissipation, in order to keep customers competitive along the product life cycle.
Faraday's USB 2.0 OTG PHY solution is compliant with UTMI+ Level 3 standard; it integrates a Transceiver, a Charge Pump and a Voltage Detector. The USB OTG PHY and Controller IP are silicon proven in UMC 0.25µm, 0.18µm, and 0.13µm processes, and 90nm USB OTG PHY will be available in Q4 this year. To ensure an easy start, Faraday provides USB2.0 OTG IP and ASIC customers with a complete developing environment which includes EV Boards, related software, data sheets, and application notes.
