Synopsys has successfully demonstrated what it claims to be the industry's first SuperSpeed USB 10Gb/s (USB 3.1) platform-to-platform host-device IP data transfer. As measured by the Ellisys USB Explorer Protocol Analyzer, the IP achieved effective data rates of more than 900MB/s between two Synopsys HAPS-70 FPGA-based prototyping systems while using backward-compatible USB connectors, cables and software.

Developed to deliver more than double the data throughput of SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) for consumer mobile and external storage device chipsets, the SuperSpeed USB 10Gb/s (USB 3.1) specification from the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) defines a more efficient data encoding scheme that increases I/O power efficiency.

"With this technology demonstration, Synopsys proves the viability of the SuperSpeed USB 10Gb/s (USB 3.1) specification, which employs advances in data encoding to more than double USB 3.0 data throughput," said Jeff Ravencraft, president and COO of USB-IF. "IP providers like Synopsys are pushing USB performance ever higher, and will accelerate the development and deployment of SuperSpeed USB 10Gb/s (USB 3.1)."
