10 fois plus rapide que l’USB 2.0, ce controleur implémente le nouveau standard USB SuperSpeed 3.0 avec un débit de 5 Gbit/s
NEC Electronics introduces the world’s first Universal Serial Bus (USB) host controller for the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard. NEC Electronics expects rapid adoption of the device and standard as the need to transfer larger and larger amounts of information continues to grow rapidly. The µPD720200 host controller supports USB transfer speeds of up to 5 gigabits per second (Gbps) of data, which is 10 times faster than previous USB 2.0 transfer speeds. The NEC Electronics device, as well as the standard, is fully backward compatible with the USB 2.0, 1.1 and 1.0 versions of the USB standard.
Samples of NEC Electronics’ µPD720200 host controller are expected to be available in June 2009, along with free Windows® device driver software. Monthly production is expected to reach approximately 1,000,000 units in September 2009.
