Symwave today announced the immediate availability of SW6313, Symwave's second generation USB 3.0 storage controller.
The SW6313 device is optimized for cost-sensitive and
portable storage products. The new controller offers
software compatibility with Symwave's first generation
devices - such as the SW6316 - which has been in production
since late 2009.
Symwave's controllers move data from a USB 3.0 host to
external hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives
(SSDs). The SW6313 System-on-Chip (SoC) delivers the same
performance as Symwave?s first generation devices launched
in 2009, while reducing overall power dissipation. The
SW6313 is fully compliant with USB 3.0 and SATA-II
specifications, fully supports the recently released UASP
revision 1.0 specification, and includes an AES hardware
encryption engine capable of encrypting data at full line
The SW6313 is designed to meet all the USB-IF certification
and compliance program requirements for SuperSpeed USB
devices. It is also fully compatible with all Windows mass
storage class drivers and also supports USB Attached SCSI
(UAS). Symwave offers customers a complete turn-key
software development kit (SDK) solution, including
reference design hardware, firmware, software, tools and
documentation to speed time-to-market.
The SW6313 will be demonstrated at Computex 2010 currently
held in Taipei, Taiwan.
