Synopsys DesignWare USB 3.0 IP shipped in over100 million production SoCs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, USA: Synopsys Inc. announced that its DesignWare USB 3.0 Controller and PHY IP has shipped in more than 100 million production system-on-chips (SoCs) used in mobile computing, digital home and cloud computing applications such as smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, digital TVs, gaming systems and servers.

More than 60 companies have successfully integrated silicon-proven DesignWare USB 3.0 IP into their products' SoCs, including SoCs in the Microsoft XBOX One. This broad usage demonstrates the quality of the IP and how Synopsys enables rapid adoption of the standard. To help ensure interoperability and lower designers' integration risk, the DesignWare USB 3.0 solution has been certified by the USB-IF through USB compliance testing in plugfests and by third-party labs.

"Based on a long history of close collaboration with Synopsys, we have shipped hundreds of millions of products that incorporate Synopsys' DesignWare USB 2.0 and 3.0 IP. In the last year alone, tens of millions of units were shipped globally," said Sanghyun Lee, VP of digital IP development team, System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics. "By using Synopsys' DesignWare USB 3.0 IP, Samsung can deliver leading SoC products to our customers."

"Our SoCs for digital home, networking and WiFi applications ship in very high volumes, so we need high-quality, highly reliable USB 3.0 IP to help ensure our success," said Yee-Wei Huang, VP and spokesman at Realtek. "We chose DesignWare USB 3.0 IP because Synopsys has a track record of delivering certified IP that has undergone extensive third-party interoperability testing. Synopsys consistently delivers high-quality IP that supports advanced power-saving standards, enabling us to reduce power consumption in our wireless SoCs. Integrating DesignWare USB 3.0 IP reduced our design risk, accelerated our time-to-market and assured the high performance that our customers expect."

"Success in high-performance USB graphics solutions demands that we deliver SoCs with the most advanced technology on schedule," said John Cummins, senior VP, worldwide sales and marketing at DisplayLink. "We selected Synopsys DesignWare USB 3.0 IP because we were extremely confident that the IP would deliver the performance, power and area we needed. DisplayLink SoCs that integrate Synopsys USB 3.0 IP are now found in the world's leading manufacturers of docking stations."

Synopsys' complete USB 3.0 IP solution, including controllers, PHYs, verification IP, IP Prototyping Kits and IP Virtual Development Kits, reduces design risk and accelerates IP prototyping, software development and integration. The DesignWare USB 3.0 IP has been certified by the USB-IF standards body more than 80 times for both Synopsys and its customers, ensuring interoperability with billions of USB-enabled devices worldwide.

In addition to supporting SuperSpeed, High-Speed, Full-Speed and Low-Speed USB modes, the DesignWare USB 3.0 IP enables 5.0 Gbps SuperSpeed USB data transfer rates while lowering overall power consumption for mobile SoC designs. Synopsys DesignWare USB 3.0 PHY IP is available for more than 25 process technologies from 130-nm to 14/16-nm FinFET, supporting all leading foundries.
