Texas Instruments SuperSpeed USB Compliant Transceiver Test Chip

Texas Instruments (TI) launched a new 5-Gbps transceiver test chip designed to the USB 3.0 specification version 1.0. The transceiver is capable of driving and receiving signals over 4m USB 3.0 cables to ensure data integrity. The first in TI’s SuperSpeed USB family of devices, the TUSB1310, SuperSpeed USB transceiver, will sample in 4Q09 and volume production is expected in 1Q10. In addition, evaluation modules will be available to interface the TUSB1310 to a variety of processor and FPGA implementations.

TI SuperSpeed USB Highlights

  • Integrated spread spectrum PLL
  • Supports multiple input reference frequencies: 20 MHz, 25 MHz, 30 MHz and 40 MHz
  • PIPE3 and ULPI compliant interfaces
  • Tested successfully at the USB-IF PIL
  • Programmable transmitter pre-emphasis
  • Best-in-class adaptive receiver equalizer
  • Saves system cost by eliminating the need for an external spread spectrum clocking device
  • Interoperability across a wide selection of ASIC / FPGA platforms eases designs by allowing designers to work with the same USB device, regardless of the processor platform
