EZ-USB SX3™ SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen1 Peripheral Controller

EZ-USB™ SX3 is a FIFO to SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen1 bridge that enables developers to add 5-Gbps USB device functionality to any FPGA-based system.

EZ-USB SX3 provides a configurable FIFO interface capable of 3.2 Gbps data bandwidth, and it’s ideally suited for USB Video Class (UVC), USB Audio Class (UAC) and general-purpose data acquisition applications.

SX3 solves these problems

  • SX3 provides 5-Gbps bandwidth – 10x the bandwidth of USB 2.0
  • SX3 is a one-chip solution with integrated PHY and proven USB intellectual property (IP), like its predecessors FX3 and CX3
  • SX3 enables simple configuration of the FIFO interface, USB Video Class (UVC) and USB Audio Class (UAC) endpoints without the need for FW development
  • SX3 shares the same market-proven USB stack with FX3 and CX3, ensuring USB spec compliance and Interoperability
