Synopsys, Inc., a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today announced that its DesignWare® USB 3.0 Controller and PHYIP 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 sixty companies have successfully integrated silicon-proven DesignWare USB 3.0 IP into their products’SoCs, including SoCs in the MicrosoftXBOX One. This broad usage demonstrates the quality of the IP and howSynopsys 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 inplugfests andby 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, vice president 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 andWiFi 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, vice president and spokesman atRealtek. “We chose DesignWare USB 3.0 IP becauseSynopsys 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 vice president, 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’sleading 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 andacceleratesIP prototyping, software development and integration. The DesignWare USB 3.0 IP has been certified by the USB-IF standards bodymore 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 formore than 25 process technologiesfrom 130-nm to 14/16-nm FinFET,supportingall leading foundries.
“As the leader in USB IP for more than 10 years and with almost 20 years of active participation in the USB-IF, Synopsys’ deepknowledge of USB standardsenables us to deliver high-quality IP thatis proven to reduce integration risk and accelerate time-to-market,” said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP and prototyping at Synopsys. “With more than 100 million chips deployed with DesignWare USB 3.0 IP, Synopsys continues to helpdesigners incorporate the USB 3.0 functionality needed to deliverhigher performance and more cost-effective SoCs.”
