After some experiments with a PSoC 5LP (CYBCKIT-059) prototype, I like what the device has to offer, with one apparent exception: USB full speed won't scale up to cover the full data rates for my application.    Am I right to understand that none of the devices this family have high-speed USB support integrated?  

Type C connector is going to be a must have very soon, but not necessarily USB 3 super-speed.    It would be great to find a economical prototyping board that combined the three features which could be used as a component in for field tests, I had hoped the CYBCKIT would be updated so I could scale-up my prototypes.       

I can't tell from the new 2016 product road maps if there's something close in there that to fits the above bill     Any suggestions from someone more experienced with USB design would be appreciated, I'm mostly a software geek.

There is no plan for Highspeed or sSperspeed USB interface for any of the PSoC family devices in the near future.

Try the Cypress FS3. It works real good. Medium learning curve but lots of support and books. The kit is CYUSB3KIT-003
