Synopsys earned the first ever certification of a USB 3.1 Host IP Solution.
We have been seeing a lot of interest in all things USB Type-C from basic USB 2.0 Type-C support all the way to the higher end USB Type-C Alt Mode with DisplayPort. Actually, the latter is getting the most focus as it’s far more complex than traditional standalone USB operation and it’s a highly desirable use mode. Many of the questions are asking for our recommendation as to how to handle the high power, high voltage power delivery and Type-C Port Controller hardware. This is a complex HW partitioning, SW partitioning and system architecture question.
Last week I blogged about how USB Type-C would replace the 3.5mm audio jack in the future. I asked the readers to comment on what they thought about this. Below is one of the comments I didn’t approve
During IDF 2016 there was a lot of buzz around USB Type-C. Two of the hot topics were USB Type-C for audio and the announcement by the USB-IF to offer certification for Type-C chargers. Also, Synopsys demonstrated our USB-IF Certified 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gb/s) host and device solution. Below is a picture of a video shoot from the show, we will publish the videos we shot in a couple of weeks.
For over a decade, the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) has been Intel’s premier conference, helping to shape the direction of tomorrow’s technology. IDF brings together people from every part of the technology world to experience visionary keynotes, technology and industry insights, and technical sessions (including lectures, interactive panels, hands-on labs and Q&As). In addition, the Technology Showcase hosts exhibits and demonstrations from Intel and leading technology companies.
This week VESA announced the availability of the Early Certification Program for USB Type-C Devices Using DisplayPort Alt Mode.
