Free Online Seminar Hosted with EE Times and USB Market Leader Will Demystify USB3.0 for Engineers

SAN JOSE, Calif., October 1, 2009 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY), the market leader in USB, today announced a free, online seminar that presents the basics of the USB3.0 specification. The 60-minute webinar, entitled “Fundamentals of USB3.0,” will be presented in conjunction with EE Times on Thursday, October 8 at 9:00 a.m. PDT. Online registration is available at

USB is the most successful peripheral interconnect and is heavily adopted in consumer electronics and PC peripherals. USB3.0 is the next revolution in the wired USB market, offering the same ease of use and flexibility that users have become comfortable with, but at the much higher data rate of 5Gbps. The USB3.0 specification also delivers excellent power management, which is very important for "Sync & Go" applications that need to maintain long battery life.

In this webinar, Cypress representatives will help engineers understand why USB3.0 is relevant, where it differs from USB2.0, and how it compares to PCI Express and other interfaces. Additionally, the presenters will look at early applications and usage models.

Cypress entered the USB market in 1996 with the goal of “Making USB Universal®” and has since become the leading USB device supplier in a wide variety of applications. In July 2009, announced it has shipped over one billion USB controllers and is committed to supporting USB3.0.
