EZ-USB™ FX3 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripheral controller
Infineon's SuperSpeed Explorer Kit and John Hyde's new book make USB 3.0 easy!
Infineon's EZ-USB™ FX3 is the industry's only SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripheral controller that enables developers to add USB 3.0 device functionality to any system.
EZ-USB™ FX3 has a fully configurable, General Programmable Interface (GPIF II) that can interface with any processor, ASIC, image sensor, or FPGA. GPIF II is an enhanced version of the original GPIF in FX2LP, Infineon's flagship USB 2.0 product. 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 CompactFlash. Additionally, users can define their own proprietary interfaces using the Infineon GPIF II designer tool.
The new FX3 SuperSpeed Explorer Kit is an easy-to-use and inexpensive development platform enabling developers to add USB 3.0 device functionality to any system. Accelerate your design with the new SuperSpeed device design by example book by John Hyde.
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™ FX3 seamlessly connects to any HD image sensor and transmits uncompressed video traffic through a USB 3.0 port.
With more and more application such as printers and scanners demanding for higher resolutions images to be processed at a faster pace, increasing bandwidth requirement is now paramount. EZ-USB™ FX3 provides a solution that is both fast and flexible to meet these needs.
