DesignWare USB 3.0 IP

DesignWare USB 3.0 IP


The DesignWare® SuperSpeed USB IP solution is based on the USB 3.0 specification from the USB Implementer Forum. The comprehensive SuperSpeed USB IP offering consists of the host, device, and dual-role device (DRD) controllers, PHYs with and without support for the USB Type-C™ connectivity specification, verification IP, IP Prototyping Kits, and IP subsystems.

These elements enable quick development of advanced chip designs incorporating the 5.0 Gbps SuperSpeed USB standard.

  • Saves engineering effort with USB IP Subsystem, PHY, and Controller
  • Saves area with smallest combined solution area
  • Saves BOM costs with integrated features
  • Saves software effort with standard drivers that are compatible with open sources

The DesignWare SuperSpeed USB IP is targeted for integration into SoCs for media storage, creation, and playback devices, requiring high bandwidth for faster “sync-and-go” functionality between PCs and portable electronic devices. The DesignWare SuperSpeed USB Digital Controller and PHY enable the fastest SuperSpeed USB data transfer speeds while lowering overall power consumption.

The IP supports Type-C connectivity with the DesignWare USB-C 3.0 IP, which simplifies users’ USB connection with reversible plug orientation and cable direction, and bi-directional power. The DesignWare USB-C 3.0 IP also supports features required for the USB Audio Device Class 3.0 specification to enable USB audio over Type-C connections.
