The MoBL-USB TX2 device is put into a "suspend" state when USB is not in use, dropping the typical power consumption to just 8 microamps and allowing the UTMI I/O pins to be tri-stated.
We received feedback from our customers that too many I/O pins were needed for the UTMI interface," said Ray Casey, product marketing manager for Cypress's MoBL-USB product line.
Tri-state Mode allows sharing of UTMI bus with other devices
With the industry's smallest stand-alone UTMI PHY, backed by USB-IF Hi-Speed USB certification, the USB3280 complements the Monahans Platform Family to provide customers with a proven Hi-Speed USB solution.
We are excited that SMSC's USB3280 UTMI PHY has been optimized to support the next-generation Intel XScale technology, the Monahans platform family," said Steve Nelson, Vice President of Marketing - Connectivity Solutions at SMSC.
SMSC's USB3280 mini UTMI stand-alone PHY, announced last March, supports the 8-bit bi-directional UTMI SIE/PHY interface, and provides a reduction of 20 pins and a footprint reduction of more than 40% compared to existing solutions.
SMSC (Nasdaq:SMSC), a leading semiconductor company delivering innovative system solutions spanning analog, digital and mixed-signal technologies, today introduced its USB3280 mini UTMI stand-alone device transceiver, which has passed Hi-Speed USB device compliance testing with the USB-IF.
