SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Corigine, Inc. today announced that its USB 3.1 Gen 2 PC host and device controller intellectual property (IP) is certified by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) and compliant with USB SuperSpeed+, the fastest USB speed standard.
"Our comprehensive USB-IF certified IP solution offers a differentiated memory-efficient, power- and cost-sensitive architecture at the fastest USB speed," says Sheng Lu, president of Corigine. "This certification creates a highly competitive alternative to what's currently available for designers to incorporate the highest-performance USB functionality, providing them with greater product design flexibility."
USB SuperSpeed+, also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2, doubles the uppermost USB transfer speed to 10 Gbps. "At this speed, it is possible to take advantage of the performance of the latest generation of SSD drives and unleash smartphone and video applications that depend on high-speed data transfers," remarks Mike Demler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. With this USB-IF certification, Corigine's IP will enable deployment of millions of devices that need the fastest USB speed.
Corigine used its USB 3.1 Gen 1 IP experience to deliver a compact USB 3.1 Gen 2 IP core with a reduced power, memory-efficient and configurable design. A complete development environment from Corigine includes the PC host and device controllers, verification IP, IP subsystems, IP prototyping and software development kits, enabling shorter design cycles for customers.
