Flexible, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Speeds Development Innovation For Systems Requiring High Bandwidth
SAN JOSE, Calif. and YOKOHAMA, Japan, 2012년 2월 8일 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) and Tokyo Electron Device (TED) today announced that they have jointly developed a USB 3.0 device interface card. The TB-FMCL-USB30, available from TED, utilizes Cypress’s EZ-USB® FX3™ controller to implement the new SuperSpeed USB, which delivers a data rate of 5 Gbps, 10 times the USB 2.0 rate.
The TB-FMCL-USB30 is an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) that connects with a PC interface card capable of a data rate of up to 5-Gbps. It utilizes the Cypress EZ-USB FX3 device, for the SuperSpeed USB implementation. The TB-FMCL-USB30 enables an embedded USB 3.0 evaluation kit by simply connecting to the motherboard. The accompanying reference design allows access to the slave peripheral supporting AMBA®4 AXI4™ (Advanced eXtensible Interface 4) implemented in a Xilinx FGPA. It lets users easily incorporate a USB 3.0 interface into AXI4-based FPGA designs. The TB-FMCL-USB30 will be available from TED as an “inrevium” brand product.
EZ-USB FX3 is one of the first USB 3.0 peripheral controllers in the industry, and the only programmable solution to date. It is equipped with a fully configurable General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II) capable of supporting data rates up to 400 MBps. GPIF II enables FX3 to interface directly with any processor, ASIC or FPGA. The GPIFTM Designer, a graphical user interface (GUI) tool kit, helps system designers to configure the GPIF interface to their needs. Several popular system interfaces are provided as examples, including FIFO, SRAM, asynchronous and synchronous multiplexed address/data. The on-chip Arm9 CPU core with 512KB RAM delivers 200 MIPS of computational power and is available for applications that require local data processing. Additionally, FX3 provides interfaces to connect to serial peripherals such as SPI, UART, I2C and I2S. In short, FX3 provides highly flexible and integrated features that enable developers to add USB 3.0 connectivity to any system.
“We are glad to see a leader such as TED providing a timely USB 3.0 solution to enable the SuperSpeed market” said Mark Fu, Senior Director of Cypress’s SuperSpeed USB Business Unit. “The FPGA mezzanine card with EX-USB FX3 is an excellent example of USB 3.0 enablers that will drive USB 3.0 adoption into many embedded applications.”
“We are pleased to have worked together with Cypress Semiconductor, who have already introduced various USB products into the market, for the development of a USB 3.0 interface card, which is now becoming widely spread for PC’s and home electronic appliances,” said Yasuo Hatsumi, Tokyo Electron Device, Vice President of Solution Business. “TED will continue to place an emphasis on the collaboration with our partners to push forward new solution proposals to enable quicker FPGA development.”
The TB-FMCL-USB30 is targeted for a wide variety of embedded applications, requiring USB 3.0 interface, and sold directly from TED with a view to selling 1,000 cards in 2014. For the motherboards of this interface card, Kintex-7 ACDC1.0 base board released in January 2012, and evaluation platform using the Virtex®-6 FPGA and Spartan®-6 FPGA are available from TED. An evaluation board using Virtex-7 FPGA is now under development.
