I’m proud to report Synopsys is the first and only company to demonstrate a real USB 3.0 Host and USB 3.0 Device working with a real MIPI M-PHY and not only demonstrating traffic, but demonstrating how we can pass the tests run by the standard USB Compliance Verifier (USBCV) 3.0.
As we enter the next era of USB, the 10 Gbps one, I’m asked constantly, why does USB need to go any faster? Answer: Users expect Instant On, fast access to everything. This means you need lower latentces, and faster access to everything inside and outside your device, tablet, phablet, or phone. If you have a notebook PC or ultrathin PC or ultrabook, it will have limited space. You have the option of having an external wireless or wired drive.

After you read about wireless drives in last week’s entry, you need a fast router that is also WiFi-AC to connect quickly to other “stuff” on your network. A USB 3.0 Host port on that router lets you create an in-home, personal cloud for everyone to share the same pictures, videos, and tax records across all your tablets, PCs, and phones.
As your thoughts turn to spring, and the great outdoors (except for in Minnesota where I’m from, where you watched fishing on TV this past weekend), you naturally ask yourself, “What is going on with that whole USB 3.0 thing?”
