Production Proven, Complex Semiconductor IP Cores

Semiconductor IP Cores



Description and Features

This is a Universal Serial Bus (USB) transceiver which is provided for peripheral devices. The PHY is compliant with the USB 3.0 (USB SuperSpeed),USB 2.0 PIPE and UTMI specifications. The USB3.0 PHY IP transceiver is optimized for low power consumption and minimal die area without sacrificing performance and highdata throughput. The USB3.0 PHY IP comprises a complete on-chip physical transceiver solution with Electro Static Discharge (ESD) protection, built-in self test module with embedded jitter injection, and a dynamic equalization circuit that ensures full support for high-performance designs. Standard PHY interface (PIPE) enables multiple IP sources for USB3 MAC layer. Allowable analog circuit parameter adjustment and internal test control Built-in Self Test with embedded Jitter Injection Output Jitter reduction with constant power technique.

The USB 3.0 PHY IP is available in different Fabs / Nodes such as “TSMC 28HPC+, UMC 28HPC, UMC 28HPC+, UMC 40LP, SMIC 14SF+”.
