News ChipX Partners with CAST to offer a Complete, Standards-Compliant USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Subsystem in a Structured ASIC

CAST USB-IF Compliant Synthesizable IP Combines with ChipX USB 2.0 Hi-Speed PHY Structured ASIC to deliver Rapid, Confident Subsystem Integration

Santa Clara, Ca, August 22 2005

ChipX, Inc., the structured ASIC leader, today announced the availability of a new portfolio of compliance-tested USB controller IP solutions for its Structured ASIC products with CAST, Inc. The silicon-proven IP can be used with ChipX’s recently introduced CX6200 family, which features a built-in PHY for USB 2.0 Hi-Speed OnThe-Go (OTG) applications. The controller IP cores also interoperate with the USB 2.0 FullSpeed multi-port transceivers included in ChipX CX5000 and CX4000 products.

Now ChipX customers can build a complete USB subsystem using CAST cores, software and, where required, add a processor such as a fast 80515 or 68000 derivative. CAST USB controllers and ChipX USB 2.0 PHY have been proven to be interoperable, and the components have achieved USB-IF compliance certification.

“Too often, USB connectivity is just a checkbox on the requirements list for new products,” says Elie Massabki, VP of Marketing at ChipX. “Yet building a USB subsystem can be timeconsuming and risky, as designers need to select, purchase, and integrate an analog PHY, a controller, and a software stack. Research shows that even after doing all that work, most Standard Cell ASIC designs fail standards compliance and require the chip to be re-designed. With the combined ChipX and CAST solution, customers are provided with a complete, preapproved USB 2.0 subsystem with full technical support from experts.” 

“We are delighted to work with ChipX,” says Hal Barbour, president of CAST, Inc. “As a leader in the structured ASIC world, ChipX offers one of the best platforms for the low-risk, quick UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL AUGUST 22, 2005 production of complex systems. Our proven IP cores and years of experience helping make  ASIC and FPGA designers successful, combined with ChipX’s outstanding products, means customers are getting one of the very best available solutions.”
