Renesas Electronics announced the availability of its two new SuperSpeed Universal Serial Bus (USB 3.0) xHCI host controllers (part number,µPD720201 and µPD720202) for electronic devices such as PCs and digital TVs that feature faster effective data transfer speeds and reduced power consumption in low power mode.
The µPD720201 and µPD720202 devices make it easier for system designers to build electronic devices combining high-speed data transfer, compact size, and extended battery life.
The new host controllers add a new four-port product to the Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 product line up and deliver even faster transfer speeds, better power efficiency, and more compact size than the company’s previous versions of USB 3.0 host controllers.
“In addition to contributing to faster data transfer processing in PCs and digital consumer electronics, Renesas Electronics’ µPD720201 and µPD720202 host controllers help extend battery life by dramatically reducing the power consumption,”said Yukihiko Matsuda, Associate General Manager, Industry & Network Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “As a core member of the USB-IF, we will continue to provide robust lineups of USB 3.0 products to accelerate the adoption of USB 3.0 in compact mobile devices.”
Mass production is scheduled to begin in September 2011 with a combined production volume of 2,000,000 units per month. (Availability is subject to change without notice.)
