Texas Instruments Inc. has unveiled a new 5-Gbps transceiver test chip designed to the USB 3.0 specification version 1.0. The new transceiver is capable of driving and receiving signals over 4-m USB 3.0 cables to ensure data integrity.

TI said the device has already been tested with Synopsys' intellectual property (IP) digital controller at the USB-IF SuperSpeed Peripheral Interoperability Lab.

"Demonstrating interoperability between Synopsys' DesignWare SuperSpeed USB digital controller and TI's USB transceiver gives designers confidence that the IP functions successfully in a real-world system environment," said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for the Solutions Group at Synopsys.

The transceiver test chip features an integrated spread spectrum PLL to support multiple input reference frequencies, including 20MHz, 25MHz, 30MHz and 40MHz as well as PIPE3 and ULPI compliant interfaces.

The first in TI's SuperSpeed USB family of devices, the TUSB1310, SuperSpeed USB transceiver, will sample in 4Q09 and volume production is expected in 1Q10. In addition, evaluation modules will be available to interface the TUSB1310 to a variety of processor and FPGA implementations.
