USB SuperSpeed Peripherals SuperSpeed USB 3.0

With constant innovation and technological advancements, the need for faster data transfer has never been greater. The USB Implementers forum aiming to provide a ubiquitous standard to solve these issues, introduced the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard in November, 2008.


In applications such as image and video transfer, printers and scanners, handheld devices, and storages, where large amounts of data is created/consumed or needs to be processed, data transfer or offloading onto another source (mostly onto a PC because of its superior processing capabilities), needs to happen quickly. USB 3.0 provides 5 Gbps speed to these devices to achieve this feat.


As the industry’s leading supplier of USB solutions, Cypress will continue its support for USB 3.0. Cypress’s EZ-USB® FX3™ is the world’s first general purpose USB 3.0 peripheral controller, aiming to add USB 3.0 functionality to any device.
