Highly configurable and optimized Pravega SuperSpeed IP to accelerate time-to-market for USB 3.0 products; technology enables 10x performance improvement over USB 2.0 in new generation of computer and consumer products
SAN JOSE, Calif., March 10, 2011 -- GDA Technologies, Inc. (an L&T Infotech Company), a leading Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) solution provider for the embedded, networking, and consumer electronics markets, announced today that its Pravega SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Dual Mode Controller IP successfully passed the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) SuperSpeed USB certification for device mode. The IP achieved this certification by passing compliance, interoperability and Gold Suite tests at the USB Implementers Forum's test lab. The Pravega SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Dual Mode Controller IP's architecture is carefully tailored to optimize link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption and silicon footprint for a variety of applications.
Mr. Sudip Banerjee, Chief Executive Officer, L&T Infotech, said, "Pravega SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cores leverage our design expertise from the popular high-speed interconnect family of IPs which has been silicon-proven and in-production in several designs. We look forward to providing our clients the efficiently designed USB 3.0 Controller IP that they can leverage for their USB 3.0 silicon programs."
"We are excited about GDA's support for SuperSpeed USB. Passing certification demonstrates that the IP meets USB-IF interoperability standards and is compliant to the USB 3.0 specification," said Mr. Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President & COO. "The certification allows USB silicon designers to accelerate their product development by using a USB-IF certified IP block that provides interoperability with existing USB products."
GDA's USB 3.0 Dual Mode Controller IP's simple, configurable and layered architecture is independent of application logic, PHY designs, implementation tools and, most importantly, the target technology. The solution allows the licensees to easily migrate among FPGA and different standard cell process technologies optimally. Its native flexible backend interface (PNPI) makes it easy to be integrated into a wide range of applications.
IP also provides standard interconnect interface with the option of either AHB or AXI interface as a drop-in solution without any loss of performance and functionality in SoC implementations. To offer the drop-in solution for these AXI or AHB-based designs, GDA has added a highly configurable and scalable bridge solution with DMA and streaming capability to its Native Pravega Core.
The Pravega SuperSpeed USB Device, Hub, Host and Dual-Role Device Controllers IP are available now.
