The DesignWare® SuperSpeed 3.1 USB IP solution is based on the USB 3.1 specification from the USB Implementer Forum. The comprehensive SuperSpeed USB IP offering consists of the device controller for integration into an SoC; verification IP (VIP) to verify the IP in the system environment; and drivers, as well as HAPS® FPGAbased prototyping systems and an IP Virtual Development Kit (VDK) for pre-silicon embedded software development. These elements enable quick development of advanced chip designs incorporating the new 10 Gbps SuperSpeed USB standard.
The DesignWare SuperSpeed 3.1 USB IP is targeted for integration into SoCs for media storage, creation, and playback devices, requiring faster bandwidth between PCs and portable electronic devices. Optimized for low power, the DesignWare SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Controllers allow designers to maximize power efficiency for extended battery life. The DesignWare SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Controller enables the fastest SuperSpeed USB data transfer speeds while lowering overall power consumption.
As the leading supplier of USB IP, Synopsys provides designers with a highperformance, low-power, and area-efficient IP solution, for cost-effective integration into system-on-chip designs. Synopsys’ expertise in developing and supporting USB enables us to build a low risk, high quality SuperSpeed USB IP solution.
