News — SuperSpeed USB 3.0 IP Core from CAST, Inc. Achieves USB-IF Certification

Woodcliff Lake, NJ November 16, 2010 — The USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) has recently granted certification to the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Device Controller IP Core from intellectual property provider CAST, Inc.

Certification by this standards body ensures the core satisfies the USB 3.0 specification and delivers the benefits of SuperSpeed USB: data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, Sync-and-go technology to reduce wait times, reduced power consumption, and backwards compatibility with Hi-Speed USB 2.0.

While many controllers are slowed when operating in real hardware/software systems, the efficient design of the core from CAST helped it to achieve one of the fastest data rates so far encountered during USB-IF testing, 430 MB/s.

Designing the core into products is straightforward thanks to several configurable options and an Open Core Protocol (OCP) standard 32-bit slave interface (AMBA™ and other system interfaces are also available). Sourced from technology partner Evatronix SA, the core is part of the proven family of USB products CAST began offering in 2001. Learn more by calling CAST at +1 201.391.8300 or visiting
