September 10, 2013 -- GDA Technologies Inc, A leading provider of High Speed Interface IPs announced availability of USB 3.0 SSIC (Super speed Inter-chip controller) IP.
SSIC is a scalable high speed protocol that uses existing USB software infrastructure and achieves low power by utilizing MIPI’s M-Phy physical layer.
The demand for very high speed and power efficient data transfer from wireless modems is driving both Application processor companies and Wi-Fi / LTE/ WiGig based wireless chipset vendors to transition from USB 2.0 HSIC protocol to USB 3.0 SSIC protocol. SSIC delivers USB 3.0 data speeds between chips to match the speed of the wireless protocols.
SSIC protocol is finding new applications as there is a growing need for unified standardized High speed interfaces which can be used internally and externally in Mobile platforms. GDA SSIC IP is evolved from its vast experience in USB 3.0 and MIPI Technologies. GDA’s SSIC solution is available in two versions.
- SSIC Adapter layer IP. It acts as an interface between PIPE 3.0 to M-PHY bridge, which can be interfaced to any USB 3.0 controller and M-PHY
- An integrated SSIC MAC IP with GDA’s USB 3.0 xHCI Host/Device controller cores.
GDA can provide total solution of SSIC IP along with integrated Phy and USB software stack /Driver solutions. FPGA validation platforms are also available.
This SSIC IP is fully compliant with “Super speed Inter-chip” supplement to USB Revision 3.0 Specification revision 1.01.
