USB Controllers

Cypress has been “Making USB Universal®” since 1996. Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the most common connectivity solution for PCs and consumer devices today. Plug and play, easy to use and simple to implement, USB continues to gain traction in new applications and market segments.

Cypress is the market leader in USB, surpassing 1 billion units shipped in 2008. With a complete portfolio of USB solutions, Cypress continues to innovate on emerging USB technologies. Cypress also provides the industry’s most comprehensive “whole product” support, including software, reference designs and driver suites. This provides a one-stop shop for all USB needs and enables our customer to get to market faster, and gain a competitive advantage in the market.

While Cypress continues to expand its Low Speed, Full Speed, and Hi-Speed USB portfolio in consumer, industrial, and medical applications, Cypress is poised to provide industry’s best solution in compliance with the emerging USB Type-C standard.
