USB 3.2: The Latest USB Type-C Challenge For SoC Designers


This white paper outlines applications that benefit from USB 3.2’s increased bandwidth, describes the latest USB 3.2 specification for USB Type-C, and explains how the latest specification affects speed using USB Type-C connectors and cables. Additionally, the white paper discusses USB 3.2 implementation, the new features of USB 3.2, and how designers can successfully integrate USB 3.2 IP in ... » read more

The Week In Review: Design


Security Security researchers identified a major exploit of the "speculative execution" technique used to optimize performance in modern processors. The flaws allow an attacker to read sensitive information in the system's memory such as passwords, encryption keys, or sensitive information open in applications, according to Google's Jann Horn. Multiple researchers discovered the issues indepen... » read more

The Week In Review: Design


IP Synopsys unveiled High Bandwidth Memory 2 (HBM2) IP. The package includes PHY, controller and verification IP and supports data rates up to 2400Mb/s, 20% faster than the JEDEC standard specification. The controller supports pseudo-channel operation in either lock step or memory interleaved mode, and the PHY offers four trained power management states and fast frequency switching. Cadence... » read more

Addressing Three Critical Challenges Of USB Type-C Implementation


As designers are create new products and system-on-chips (SoCs) with USB Type-C support, they need to be aware of datapath and hardware/software partitioning challenges. The SoC and system design must be partitioned to support the specification’s requirements for precision analog circuitry plus high voltage/high current switches, and Type-C management software must be partitioned to execute o... » read more

USB Connectors Get Smarter


By now, there’s quite a buzz about the new USB Type-C spec given that it provides for a reversible plug connector for USB devices and cabling, aiming to end the endless cable flipping to make sure the orientation is correction. To avoid confusion, while developed at about the same time as the USB 3.1 specification, it is distinct from that one. When it comes to software support for Type-C,... » read more
