Symwave and MCCI Demonstrate the World’s Highest Performance USB 3.0 System

Over 270MB/s achieved by combining MCCI’s PC Host Software and Symwave’s Integrated Storage Controller

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 22, 2009Symwave, a leading silicon supplier of system solutions for SuperSpeed USB devices, and MCCI, a leading developer of USB drivers and embedded software, today announced their successful collaboration to demonstrate the world’s highest performing USB 3.0 system achieving over 270MB/s. The demo will take place at the Intel Developers Forum September 22-24 using a commercially available computer and solid state drive (SSD) combined with MCCI’s optimized USB 3.0 host software and Symwave’s USB 3.0 SuperSpeed SATA controller.

”With over 600 million devices deployed with MCCI USB software, MCCI understands what can be achieved by combining best in class SoCs and software. Even with the exceptional performance shown, this demonstration showcases the result of our initial collaboration and not the end product,” said Terry Moore, CEO of MCCI. “SuperSpeed USB 3.0 offers developers of devices and software a huge market opportunity based on differentiating features and performance. Symwave’s storage controller was the obvious choice to showcase the results that can achieved when our solutions and complementary USB expertise is combined.”

“Collaborating with MCCI and achieving this type of performance is an example of how excellence breeds excellence. The Symwave storage controller was architected to offer our customers unmatched performance and a platform for advanced features and storage product evolution,” said Yossi Cohen, CEO of Symwave. “MCCI has partnered with us to unleash the performance of our device significantly beyond what the existing USB 3.0 host software solutions achieve. We will continue to work closely with MCCI and introduce even higher performing devices and software solutions.”

The live demonstration of MCCI’s and Symwave’s USB 3.0 SuperSpeed host software and storage controller can be seen at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) booth 825. The IDF is held at the Moscone Center West, San Francisco, CA from September 22-24 (
