Mouser Electronics, Inc., announced that it is stocking the EZ-USB® FX3 SuperSpeed USB Controller from Cypress Semiconductor as well as the USB 3.0 Re-Driver from NXP Semiconductors.
The Cypress EZ-USB FX3 is the next-generation USB 3.0 peripheral controller that enables developers to add USB 3.0 device functionality to any system. The FX3 has a fully configurable General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II), which can interface with virtually any processor, ASIC, image sensor or FPGA. GPIF II provides easy and glueless connectivity to popular industry interfaces such as synchronous Slave FIFO, asynchronous SRAM, asynchronous and synchronous Address Data Multiplexed interface, parallel ATA, etc. The FX3’s programming flexibility makes it an ideal solution for any USB 3.0 device. The Cypress EZ-USB FX3 Development Kit provides complete hardware and software solutions for accelerating the firmware and device driver development for the FX3 device. It can be used to start hardware or software integration and build final systems after the integration phase is complete. The kit contains the Development Kit PCB, a USB 3.0 A to Micro B cable, the Quick Start Guide, a Kit CD, and a 5V DC adapter
