Cypress’s New EZ-USB FX2LP Low Power USB 2.0 Controller Earns USB-IF Certification
Cypress Semiconductor Corp., the market leader in USB, today announced that its new EZ-USB™ FX2LP (CY7C68013A) low power, programmable USB 2.0 controller has been certified by the USB Implementers’ Forum (USB-IF) and is now featured on its Integrator’s list available at www.usb.org. Samples of the product demonstrated flawless performance and interoperability with a broad range of other USB devices at a recent USB-IF Compliance Workshop (a.k.a. "Plugfest") sponsored by the non-profit trade group.
EZ-USB FX2LP is the industry’s smallest, most power-efficient, high-speed USB 2.0 controller. It takes advantage of a new advanced process technology developed for USB devices by Cypress to slash power consumption by nearly 50 percent versus leading competitors. As a result, USB peripherals using the EZ-USB FX2LP controller— including mass storage devices and personal media players— are able to operate off of the power of the USB bus.
Featuring a data rate of 480 Mbps, 16 Kbytes of on-chip memory, and up to 40 programmable I/Os, Cypress’s EZ-USB FX2LP solution provides world-class design flexibility. There are also several package options, including a space-saving 8mm x 8mm QFN package, ideal for use in small form-factor mobile applications.
