USB 3.0 xHCI Host Controller IP

The Cadence® Host Controller IP for USB 3.0 xHCI is one of the most widely adopted and silicon-proven USB 3.0 controllers. To date, it has been shipped in hundreds of millions of devices. Compatible with USB 3.0 specification (AKA USB 3.1 Gen 1), the USB 3.0 xHCI Host Controller IP provides over 400Mbps throughput for Host applications in PCs, tablets, notebook and set top box applications.

The USB 3.0 xHCI Host Controller IP is a proven USB host controller and a golden standard for USB 3.0 connectivity. It is available in a wide range of configurations that will meet the needs of both high-performance and embedded, low-power applications. The IP is available as both an individual component with standardized ARM® AMBA® AXI/APB and PIPE3/UTMI interfaces and also as an integrated subsystem with the Cadence USB 3.0 PHY IP for accelerated system integration.

Compliant with Universal Serial Bus 3.0 Specification, Revision 1.0 and xHCI Specification, Revision 1.0, our host controller ensures easy integration with standard drivers in Linux- and Windows-based applications.

With an advanced, xHCI-based scatter-gather DMA interface implemented, the USB 3.0 xHCI Host Controller IP supports all USB applications running in popular operating systems. The IP operates in SuperSpeed (5Gbps), High-Speed (480Mbps), Full-Speed (12Mbps), and Low-Speed (1.5 Mbps) modes. The PHY interface complies with USB PHY Interface for PCI Express® (PIPE) for USB 3.0, as well as USB 2.0 Transceiver Macrocell Interface (UTMI) Specification, version 1.05.
