Overview

USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 standard is ubiquitous across the world and has raised the demand to implement it in various products. The integration of USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 Device with FPGA development board needs 60+ I/O for USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 PHY chip to connect it with FPGA. This adds an extra cost to the board. Altera has introduce the FPGA which has in built transceiver which run at 5Gbps speed (same as USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) Specification) with features like 8b/10b, SKIP control etc. required during implementing USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 Controller. SLS has integrate the USB 3.1 Gen 1 Device IP Core with the Altera Transceiver and USB 2.0 PHY chip, and developed the eUSB 3.1 Gen 1 Device Controller IP Core, offering low cost solution.
