The DesignWare® SuperSpeed USB IP complete solution is based on the USB 3.0 specification from the USB Implementers Forum and consists of the xHCI host and device controllers, PHY and verification IP. Additionally, the solution includes a SuperSpeed USB virtual platform and drivers to aid software development. Utilizing elements from a single vendor enables designers to quickly create SuperSpeed USB-based designs from concept through implementation and software development.
Next generation applications, such as camcorders, portable media players and smartphones require higher bandwidth for faster "sync-and-go" functionality between PCs and portable electronic devices. SuperSpeed USB delivers more than 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB and is backwards compatible with previous USB technologies, offering the same ease-of-use and plug-and-play capabilities, while maintaining interoperability with existing USB products.
The USB 3.0 solution now includes a protocol analyzer for use with the Synopsys USB 3.0 verification IP.
Verification IP quickly verifies connectivity between the integrated IP and the SoC
