In case you missed out on the 10-in-10 Computing Conference hosted by Insyde in Taipei on 15th Oct 2010, we have summarized the best parts for you!
At the conference, Insyde and Fresco Logic partnered to showcase industry’s first public demonstration of an OS Booting from a USB 3.0 hard drive, using our FL1009 xHCI1.0 supported host controller and Insyde’s BIOS.
The USB boot was supported by Insyde BIOS from the external HDD which was connected to one of the ports in our FL1009 solution. A RAID device was used to demo the performance through the other port.
The demo set below illustrated how xHCI1.0 USB boot is supported by Insyde BIOS and the performance of both ports of Fresco Logic FL1009
During IDF San Francisco 2010 we showed FL1009 performance exceeding 370MBps. This time using the Calpella PCIe Gen.2 platform (PCIe gen.2 from CPU) and the performance still managed to exceed 300MBps- record high under this platform!
With xHCI1.0 becoming the standard for USB 3.0 host controller and being so widely adapted by the USB 3.0 ecosystem it is evident that USB 3.0 has reached maturity! “Collaborating with Fresco Logic in support of the xHCI 1.0 specification ensures that our mutual customers will be able to fully leverage the FL1009 solution without adding engineering overhead or development time to their design,” said Kevin Davis, VP of Engineering, Insyde Software.
Fresco Logic aims to continuously cater for all computing market segments and audiences by working with industry leading vendors. It would be our pleasure to cooperate with you to support this standards specification of USB 3.0!
We will keep you updated with more exciting news and development here at Fresco Logic, stay tuned.
