Renesas releases USB-IF certified USB 3.0 hub controller

JAPAN & USA: Renesas Electronics Corp. announced that its latest Universal Serial Bus 3.0 (USB 3.0) hub controller (part number uPD720210) has passed USB 3.0 compliance and certification testing by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).

It is one of the world’s first USB 3.0 hub controllers to achieve this recognition, following Renesas’ world’s first USB 3.0 host controller certification in 2009.

The “Certified SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0)” certification from the USB-IF offers manufacturers and consumers the assurance that the device will function in accordance with the specification and will interoperate with the billions of USB-enabled devices that exist in the market today.

Renesas has continued its effort to create USB certified devices, including its world's first certified USB 3.0 xHCI (eXtensive Host Controller Interface) controller (part number uPD720200), its three descendants, and a USB 3.0 SATA bridge (part number uPD720230). Renesas Electronics now offers six USB-IF-certified USB 3.0 products, which will pave the way for the swell of industry support for the USB 3.0 standard.

Samples of Renesas Electronics' USB-IF-certified uPD720210 hub controller are available now, priced at $3.50 per unit.
