SuperSpeed Your Design with FX3S!
Cypress EZ-USB® FX3S™ is the latest addition to the highly successful EZ-USB® FX3™ family of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripheral controllers. In addition to USB 3.0 functionality and a powerful Arm core, FX3S’s integrated storage host controllers enable developers to add support for SD/eMMC memories and SDIO devices to their system.
Based on the proven FX3 Platform, FX3S leverages FX3’s familiar ecosystem and package to reduce your time-to-market and design complexity. FX3S has the fully configurable General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II), which can interface with virtually any processor, ASIC, Image Sensor or FPGA with a parallel port. 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 custom master and slave interfaces using the Cypress’s GPIF™ II Designer Tool.
FX3S supports up to 2 storage ports allowing developers to greatly expand their system capabilities. It supports SD 3.0 (UHS-I), eMMC 4.41 and SDIO 3.0 standards. Full flexibility in terms of simultaneous datapaths (U-Port <--> S-Port, P-Port <--> S-Port, U-Port <--> P-Port) allows system to do data storage and data transfer at the same time. FX3S can support up to 2TB SDXC cards giving tremendous data capacity. By using 2 eMMC devices in parallel, developers can theoretically support up to 208 MBps of data storage bandwidth. Using SDIO 3.0, developers can greatly expand their system capabilities to support features such as Wifi, GPS, LTE, etc.
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 FX3S seamlessly connects to any HD image sensor and transmits uncompressed video traffic through a USB 3.0 port.
