The West Bridge® family offers a revolutionary architectural enhancement for embedded applications. Peripheral controllers in the West Bridge family function as a companion chip to an embedded central processing unit (CPU) to free it from data-intensive operations. West Bridge controllers achieve superior data transfer performance by enabling simultaneous and independent data paths between USB port, mass storage devices and embedded processors.
West Bridge enables:
Configurable multimedia storage interface that supports latest mass storage standards
Versatile SDIO interface that expands connectivity options to Bluetooth, WiMAX, DTV tuner, GPS, and etc
Flexible processor interfaces, easing connections to a broad range of embedded processors
