Beaverton, Oregon and TAIPEI, Taiwan – December 6th, 2011 – Fresco Logic Inc, a global fabless semiconductor company providing advanced solutions that deliver highly-efficient connectivity, such as USB 3.0 and PCI Express for next-generation consumer electronics, personal computing, storage and mobile devices, today announced its FL1100 4-port USB 3.0 Host Controller has achieved USB-IF certification for Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI) rev 1.0 Specification . With Fresco Logic’s Patented GoXtream™ architecture, FL1100 features advanced technologies including UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), hardware-based LPM, and flexible USB charging. FL1100 is the most feature-s rich and efficient per- port cost solution for USB 3.0 enabled applications.
FL1100 fully supports the UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) standard, the next generation storage protocol designed for USB 3.0. This feature optimizes the transfer efficiency of the 5Gbps channel by eliminating some of the classic BOT (bulk-only transport) bottlenecks. With hardware-based LPM (Link Power Management), when a USB 2.0 LPM-capable device is attached, FL1100 automatically negotiates with the device for entrance to the low power states. This function helps the system manage the link power more effectively and, by eliminating software intervention, allows the host CPU to remain in sleep states for longer periods of time.
FL1100 is compliant with Battery Charging (BC) Specification Revision 1.2: Charging Downstream Port (CDP), and China Charging YD/T 1591-2009 Standards. FL1100’s proprietary hybrid-charging mode automatically distinguishes BC-compliant devices or China Charging devices and handshakes accordingly. With appropriate power supply design, system designers can easily support USB charging without extra discrete USB charging components.
FL1100 is now available for mass production. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
