2011-04-11 19:49:51 NZST :: Processor

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. today introduced its first USB 3.0 controller, the EZ-USB® FX3 targeted at video and imaging, printing, scanning, and a variety of applications that need higher throughput than USB 2.0.

The new EZ-USB FX3 (CYUSB3014) device is a flexible peripheral controller with a General Programmable Interface (GPIF II) that delivers a 5-Gbps USB 3.0 data pipeline, a fully configurable ARM9™ processor core and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0. With an internal bus architecture designed to operate at 4 times the USB 3.0 speeds, EZ-USB FX3 is ideal for moving large amounts of data extremely fast. It can, for example, deliver high-definition video streaming in imaging applications, eliminating the need for compression on the peripheral side.


The EZ-USB FX3 CYUSB3014 controller is sampling now and full production quantities are expected in September of 2011. It is offered in 121-ball 10x10mm BGA package and in Industrial Temperature grade.
