Enable Customers' Fastrack to USB 3.0, Faraday Pioneers to Launch Its USB 3.0 PHY in UMC 0.13um
Succeeding to the successful histories on USB 2.0, Faraday's USB 3.0 PHY is one of the earliest solutions appearing in the market. Due to the demand of higher-speed peripheral interface evoked by the widening gap between the speed limitation of USB 2.0 and increasing growth of data capacity; the application of USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed USB) will cover not only the territories of its predecessor also some new areas created by this high-speed transmission, especially in multimedia storage. Faraday has been engaged by numerous customers for product development, including one host controller provider. Faraday expects this will bring her great opportunity after the application booming in 2010.
"Just weeks after launching the leading PCIe GII solution, now Faraday has
the USB 3.0PHY, which points to the fact that Faraday do have the most robust
design capabilities in high-speed IO among the peers," said
"We are pleased to see that a USB 3.0 PHY solution has been made available
from Faraday" said
To achieve the specification with trade-off between power and die size, Faraday has carried out some sophisticated improvement in this PHY architecture, including a new compensation circuits in the equalizer of receiver to eliminate the channel loss caused by the cable and trace wire in the board. Some other new architectures also work for clock data recovery and transmitter to make the eye diagram meet the specification in all conditions.
