USB 4.0 Host Controller IP
Description and Features
The USB 4.0 Host controller IP is a highly configurable core and implements the USB 4.0 Host functionality that can be interfaced with third party USB 4.0 PHY's. The USB 4.0 Device IP core is latest development that enables designers in the PC, mobile, consumer and communication markets to bring significant power and performance enhancements to the popular USB standard while offering backwards compatibility with billions of USB-enabled devices currently in the market. It is validated using FPGA prototype with industry standard PHYs.
Initial Versions :
