Programmable ARM9-based SuperSpeed USB 3.0 controller

Cypress Semiconductor launched its first USB 3.0 controller, the EZ-USB FX3 (CYUSB3014) device, 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 four times the USB 3.0 speeds, EZ-USB FX3 is well suited 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.

USB 3.0 also offers a 20% improved power efficiency and supports about twice the battery charging speed compared to USB 2.0. The EZ-USB FX3 CYUSB3014 controller comes in a 121-ball 10x10mm BGA package and in industrial temperature grade.
