New Update: Use the new EZ-USB FX3 Collateral Guide as a system-level guide before starting your USB 3.0 design.
Cypress EZ-USB® FX3™ is the industry's only SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripheral controller that enables developers to add USB 3.0 device functionality to any system.
EZ-USB FX3 has a fully configurable, General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II) that can interface with any processor, ASIC, image sensor, or FPGA. GPIF™ II is an enhanced version of the original GPIF™ in FX2LP, Cypress’s flagship USB 2.0 product. It provides easy and glue-less connectivity to popular industry interfaces such as synchronous Slave FIFO, asynchronous SRAM, asynchronous and synchronous Address Data Multiplexed interface, and Compact Flash. Additionally, users can define their own proprietary interfaces using the Cypress’s GPIF™ II Designer Tool.
The new FX3 SuperSpeed Explorer Kit is an easy-to-use and inexpensive development platform enabling developers to add USB 3.0 device functionality to any system. Accelerate your design with the new SuperSpeed Device Design by Example book by John Hyde.
USB 3.0 provides a 5 Gbps link that supports uncompressed HD video transfer and enables applications such as DSC, DVC, webcams, security cameras, machine vision, medical imaging, and surveillance equipment. EZ-USB FX3 seamlessly connects to any HD image sensor and transmits uncompressed video traffic through a USB 3.0 port.
With more and more application such as printers and scanners demanding for higher resolutions images to be processed at a faster pace, increasing bandwidth requirement is now paramount. EZ-USB FX3 provides a solution that is both fast and flexible to meet these needs.
