December 6, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- Infineon announced that it has expanded its EZ-USB™ family of programmable USB peripheral controllers with the EZ-USB FX10, which provides fast connections for USB 10Gbps and LVDS interfaces, increasing the total bandwidth by 3% compared to the previous generation. times.

The EZ-USB FX10 is equipped with dual ARM® Cortex®-M4 and M0+ core CPUs, a 512 KB flash, a 128 KB SRAM, a 128 KB ROM, and seven serial communication blocks (SCBs). It also includes a cryptography accelerator and a high-bandwidth data subsystem. The high-bandwidth data subsystem enables direct memory access (DMA) data transfers between LVDS/LVCMOS and USB ports at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. Data transfer is supported by an additional 1 MB of SRAM for USB data buffering. The peripheral controller provides USB-C connector orientation detection and flip-mux functionality, eliminating the need for external logic. This comprehensive feature set makes the EZ-USB FX10 an ideal choice for developers looking for a powerful and adaptable USB controller.

The EZ-USB FX10 requires a smaller PCB footprint and thus helps to optimize the BOM. The 10 x 10 mm² BGA package makes it ideal for space-constrained applications. Additionally, it supports USB-C direct connection without a high-speed signal multiplexer, which simplifies the design process. The Quick Start Development Kit includes firmware and a configuration tool for easy integration. The EZ-USB FX10 DVK (development kit) also comes with a standard FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) connector for easy connection to field-programmable gate array (FPGA) boards and an all-in-one programming and debugging accessory board. The controller comes with a comprehensive set of application notes for hardware and software design, enabling developers to create high-performance devices for various applications.

The EZ-USB FX10 peripheral controller in a 10 x 10 mm² BGA package will be available in the fourth quarter of 2024. Engineering samples are available now. For more information, please visit
