The Fastest USB 3.0 Flash Drive in the Universe (maybe)

I posted a blog “Fastest USB 3.0 Flash Drive?…” back in January.  I got reader e-mail. An kindly reader wrote in: “Look at the Lexar Triton (USB 3.0 Flash Drive)… (It gets USB 3.0 Performance numbers like) 155MB/s read and 150MB/s write … it is “among the fastest”  http://www.lexar.com/products/lexar-jumpdrive-triton-usb-30-flash-drive” (Let’s call this reader Mr. Snarkman.)

The World’s First Demonstration of SuperSpeed InterChip (SSIC)

Synopsys worked with the USB-IF SSIC Working Group to develop a SSIC Proof of Concept demonstration.  The USB-IF has been working on SSIC for some time.   This Proof of Concept in FPGA is to test the SSIC specification version 0.90 to see if it actually works in hardware. It worked (mostly).   We learned, […]
