M31 Technology Corporation, a global Silicon Intellectual Property (IP) boutique, today announced that Corigine’s USB 3.1 Gen 2 PC host and device controller intellectual property (IP) with M31 28nm PHY is certified by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) and compliant with USB SuperSpeed+, the fastest USB speed standard.

 

USB SuperSpeed+, also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2, doubles the uppermost USB transfer speed to 10 gigabits per second. “At this speed, it is possible to take advantage of the performance of the latest generation of SSD drives and unleash smartphone and video applications that depend on high-speed data transfers,” remarks Mike Demler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. With this USB-IF certification, Corigine’s IP will enable deployment of millions of devices that need the fastest USB speed.

 

“M31 is pleased to offer the 3.1 Gen 2 PHY in various process nodes including 28nm, 12nm and 7nm,” adds Scott Chang, M31’s vice president. “M31 is delighted to have USB-IF certification along with Corigine’s USB Gen 2 controllers and pleased to offer the 3.1 Gen 2 PHY in 28nm as part of Corigine’s complete and highly competitive offering.”

 

“Corigine’s comprehensive USB-IF certified IP solution offers a differentiated memory-efficient, power- and cost-sensitive architecture at the fastest USB speed,” says Sheng Lu, president of Corigine. “This certification creates a highly competitive alternative to what’s currently available for designers to incorporate the highest-performance USB functionality, providing them with greater product design flexibility.”

 

Corigine used its USB 3.1 Gen 1 IP experience to deliver a compact USB 3.1 Gen 2 IP core with a reduced power, memory-efficient and configurable design. A complete development environment from Corigine includes the PC host and device controllers, verification IP, IP subsystems, IP prototyping and software development kits, enabling shorter design cycles for customers.

 

M31 Technology USB 3.1 PHY IP is extremely popular and well received by their existing customers for maturity, quality, compact size and support ranging from most popular to most advanced nodes. M31 Technology believes in first time silicon success and offers complete and high quality solutions to their customers.
