Renesas: Showcasing USB Products, Solutions
Renesas Electronics America, a Santa Clara, Calif.-based semiconductor firm, showed several advanced USB solutions at IDF.
The company said it was the first to demonstrate a working power source and power sink based on the USB Power Delivery Specification Rev 1.0, which enables optimized power management for multiple peripherals as well as intelligent and flexible system-level power management.
Renesas also unveiled a new dual-port, low-power USB 3.0 Hub Controller (uPD720211) in a small-form package. The company claims it allows designers to increase their USB 3.0 port count with up to 10 times the transfer rate of previous solutions.
