Peripheral controllers in the West Bridge family function as a companion chip to an embedded central processing unit (CPU) to free it from data-intensive operations. West Bridge controllers achieve superior data transfer performance by enabling simultaneous and independent data paths between USB port, mass storage devices and embedded processors.
Cypress’ portfolio of host controllers include single and dual role LS/FS USB host/peripheral controllers. With these controllers, your USB ports can have both device and host capabilities.
USB 2.0 Peripheral Controllers
Cypress’ Low Speed, Full Speed and Hi-Speed USB peripheral controller portfolio encompasses both programmable and fixed function solutions, tailored to serve general-purpose USB applications, storage and other user-specific applications. In addition, Cypress’ USB solutions are supported by industry’s best software tool kits and reference designs, which would accelerate the development time for any design.
