Corigine provides USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 Gen 1, and USB 3.1 Gen 2 controllers that are USB-IF certified, which few suppliers can claim. Corigine's SuperSpeed and Superspeed+ 3.1 USB IP is based on the USB 3.1 specification from the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). USB-IF certification reduces the risk of IP design errors due to specification interpretations. Corigine USB controllers are based on a next generation architecture which can fully take advantage of the latest USB features, while maintaining the smallest size, lowest power, and maximum configurability.
Corigine's USB controllers comes with their own UVM-based test suites and are rigorously tested with third-party verification IP (VIP). Utilizing third-party VIP in the verification environment ensures independence from design and verification which is critical for robustness. For system integration and rapid software development, Corigine offers an FPGA development board with industry standard PHYs allowing the connection to real world devices and hosts.
The Corigine USB designer team have been developing USB controllers for many years. The team has leveraged their expertise to develop the next generation USB controllers delivering the most cost-effective, fully compliant SuperSpeed USB IP solution.
