PHYs, PHYs, PHYs – Synopsys’ USB 3.0 PHY IP and USB 2.0 PHY – Blantant Marketing Pitch

Synopsys not only has fantastic USB Digital IP, but also USB PHY IP, both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 IP.   In fact, I’m guessing we have ported our USB PHYs to over 100 process nodes.

How could this be?  How is this possible?   Hard work and great execution and 10 years of building PHYs.   You can read more about our USB PHYs here at our USB Solutions page here.
