Genesys Logic Furnishes USB 2.0 UTMI Transceiver IP Solution Date:2002/01/08

[ Taipei, Taiwan ]

As its advanced products passed strict tests held by USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum, an official USB organization) and received the official certification for USB 2.0 high-speed products, Genesys Logic, a well-known Taiwanese IC designer, provides business with leading USB 2.0 UTMI Transceiver technology by means of SIP after separating it from a spectrum of products.  It is predicted that the release of high-speed USB technology not only offers IC design or system companies a faster and more complete IP access with superior technical support, but ensures them shorter R&D period and better compatibility with quality certified by USB-IF. 


The IP released by Genesys Logic is USB 2.0 Transceiver (Product ID: GL800), which was developed independently by the company.  The product can be applied to UMC's .35μm advanced processing and fulfills the USB 2.0 Transceiver Macrocell Interface (UTMI) standards to achieve the best compatibility. GL800 features high-speed transmission up to 480Mbps for USB 2.0 devices and is absolutely compatible with the previous USB 1.1 interface. Within this core structure, GL800 accomplishes the most multifarious applications.  For example, GL800 can be used to upgrade numerous high-speed transmission devices to USB 2.0, including scanners, DSC (digital still camera), PC Cameras, printers, external storage media (e.g. DVD, CD-R/RW and MO).


"What we offer to our clients is not only a standard high-speed IP  as they expected but a well-developed IP certified by Intel and having successfully transferred to mass production." said Mr. Jordon Huang, Director of R&D Section 1.  Genesys Logic has acquired a good reputation in the IC SIP service industry.  To provide thorough technical support, the company established a special customer service team exclusively for users of the product.  With a detailed knowledge of the product, the team members help clients integrate the IP to their own products to achieve the goal of "System On a Chip".  They also assist the clients in accomplishing perfect compatibility between GL800 and their products with sophisticated experience in USB compatibility tests.


The number of IC design companies in Taiwan is the second to the United States in the world.  The characteristics of industry in Taiwan show that the companies tend to focus on personal computers (PC) as their business scope.  By offering its core technology of USB 2.0 PHY, Genesys Logic succeeded in exploring more business opportunities.  It also helps domestic IC designers enhance technical breakthroughs by combining their innovation with the tremendous bandwidth of USB 2.0 to create a variety of high-speed applications.  These applications will probably become a key to superior competence of computer and IT businesses in Taiwan along with plentiful supply of key components.  Since Taiwanese companies have a significant market share in the international IT industry, the coming of the high-speed USB 2.0 era is fairly expectable.


About USB 2.0: In addition to advantages of Plug-and-Play (PnP, also available in USB 1.1) and extensive capacity up to 127 devices, USB 2.0 multiplies transmission speed to 480Mbps, which is 40 times of 12Mbps in USB 1.1.  It is completely compatible with the USB 1.1 interface as well.  Hence USB 2.0 can be applied to peripherals requiring vast data transmission for humanized operation such as portable CD-RW, scanners, PC Cameras, etc.  For more information, visit the official USB-IF site at http://www.usb.org/.
