First SuperSpeed USB Interoperability Demonstrated

Today at the USB Implementers Forum SuperSpeed USB Developers Conference in Tokyo, multiple companies demonstrated interoperable prototype hosts and devices supporting the SuperSpeed USB technology.

Companies including Fresco Logic, Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited, LucidPort Technology, Inc. and NEC Electronics Corporation showcased interoperable prototype PC hosts and peripheral devices using prototype software from Intel to transport SuperSpeed USB traffic.

The USB 3.0 specification was completed and released in November 2008, marking the beginning of SuperSpeed USB product development efforts. SuperSpeed USB brings significant power and performance enhancements to the popular USB standard while offering backward compatibility with Uthe SB-enabled PCs and peripheral devices currently in the market. The technology delivers data transfer rates up to 10x faster than Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) as well as optimized power management.

SuperSpeed USB demonstrations at the event included a Fresco Logic prototype PC host working with a mass storage device from Fujitsu. In another demonstration, NEC Electronics Corporation featured a PC host transferring data to a mass storage device from LucidPort. The USB-IF anticipates SuperSpeed USB products will be available for consumers to purchase in early 2010.
