Synopsys USB 3.0 Dual-Role Device Controller IP

The Synopsys USB 3.0 Dual-Role Device (DRD) Controller is a set of synthesizable soft IP that ASIC/FPGA designers can use to implement a complete USB 3.0 DRD for 5 Gbps speeds. The USB 3.0 DRD Controller is compliant with the specifications for SuperSpeed, High-Speed, Full-Speed, and Low-Speed USB speeds. Optimizing development time and minimizing engineering risk, the Synopsys USB 3.0 DRD Controller helps designers bring their host and peripheral designs to market faster for wired and wireless applications such as smart phones, tablets, TVs, set-top boxes, cameras, modems, game consoles, PCs, and telecommunications equipment. In addition, the IP is silicon proven in design process nodes from 180-nm to 7-nm.

The Synopsys USB 3.0 DRD Controller can be easily bridged to any industry-standard bus and includes both the AMBA™ AHB and AXI interfaces. It also has the HSIC feature to connect to HSIC PHYs. The controller can also be configured for USB 2.0 only mode.

Synopsys USB Controllers have shipped in over one billion units for electronics leading companies worldwide. Using Synopsys USB IP significantly reduces development time and engineering risk, bringing USB-based SoCs to market faster.

Synopsys USB IP is the most certified IP solution in the industry. With over 3,000 design wins, Synopsys' complete USB IP solution--consisting of controllers, PHYs, verification IP, drivers, and IP prototypes--enables designers to lower integration risk and speed time-to-market.
