ARC International's Soft IP Core Combines with SMSC's USB 2.0 PHY to Achive High-Speed USB Certification

6/10/2002 - ARC International (LSE: ARK) and Standard Microsystems Corporation (Nasdaq: SMSC) today announced the availability of a complete USB 2.0 solution that is certified for high-speed operation by the USB Implementers Forum. Developers combining ARC's customizable VUSB-HS device controller with SMSC's industry-leading GT3200 PHY integrated circuit (IC) can reduce product cost and power consumption while accelerating time-to-market for products with 480-Mbps USB connectivity. The GT3200 allows designers to keep the analog function of the USB 2.0 PHY external while synthesizing the VUSB-HS soft core into their system-on-chip using a traditional digital logic design flow. Designers can take advantage of the system-level architecture of ARC's VUSB-HS device controller to save hundreds of thousands of gates over competing solutions, resulting in reduced chip die area, power consumption, manufacturing cost and design complexity.
