USB 3.1 Device & Host Controller Ip Cores is Available for Immediate Licensing

 T2MIP, the global independent semiconductor IP Cores provider & Technology experts, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its partner’s USB-IF compliant USB 3.1 Device and Host Controller IP Cores with matching USB 3.1 PHY IP Cores which are silicon proven in major Fabs and Nodes.

USB 3.1 Host and Device Controllers are highly configurable IP Cores that can be interfaced with any third-party USB 3.1 PHY IP Core. The Controller IP Cores are compliant with USB3.1 specification and are architected to include a High-Performance DMA Engine based on xHCI Specification. These IP Cores can be configured to support full-fledged xHCI implementations for use in standard PCIe-USB bus adaptors/chipsets or be configured with a subset of features for embedded applications requiring limited host functionality.

USB 3.1 Host Controller IP exposes either a AXI or AHB Master Interface for the Datapath and an AHB Slave Interface for Register Access. USB 3.1 Host Controller IP Core can be configured to support all types of USB transfers – Bulk, Interrupt and Isochronous and allows dynamic configuration to support configurable number of endpoints, interfaces, alternate interfaces, and configurations. USB 3.1 Host Controller IP Cores can be configured to support any combinations of USB 3.1 interface speeds – SSP (10 Gbps), SS(5 Gbps), HS (480 Mbps), FS(12 Mbps) and LS(1.5 Mbps) with support for all low power features of the USB Specification supporting Suspend and Remote Wakeup.

The USB 3.1 Device Controller IP core is carefully partitioned to support standard power management schemes which include extensive clock gating and multiple power wells for aggressive power savings required for mobile and handheld applications. This controller has a very simple application interface which can be easily adapted to standard on-chip-bus interface. The USB 3.1 Device Controller IP Core implements an aggressive Low Power Management and configurable system clock frequency. Its Layered architecture allows for Bulk Streaming. It also boasts configurable PIPE Interface: 8, 16, 32 bit with optional support for Type-C connectors.

The USB 3.1 Host and Device Controller IP Cores has been silicon proven in Graphics Controller, Flash Storage Controllers, SATA Bridges with support for Bulk Streaming, Embedded Hosts, Docking Stations, Mobile Application Processors, Smart TV, Hubs.

In addition to USB 3.1 Host and Device Controller and PHY IP Cores, T2M ‘s broad silicon Interface IP Core Portfolio includes USB OTG, PCIe, HDMI, Display Port, MIPI, DDR, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, V by One, programmable SerDes, Serial ATA, and many more Controllers with matching PHYs, available in major Fabs in process geometries as small as 7nm. They can also be ported to other foundries and leading-edge processes nodes on request.

Dye-based device sees the invisible

Scientists in Europe have designed an organic dye-based device that can see light waves in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) range. The device is easy to make using cheap materials, and is stable at high temperatures. The findings, published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials, could lead to more widespread use of inexpensive consumer SWIR imaging and sensing devices.

In the upconversion device, shortwave infrared (SWIR) light with wavelengths beyond 1,000 nm is absorbed by the squaraine dye in the photodetector (PD), producing electrical charges. Charges flow into the organic light-emitting diode (OLED), where they recombine under the emission of visible light. This way, SWIR light, which cannot be detected by the human eye, is converted into visible light.

The human eye can only detect a very narrow segment of the electromagnetic spectrum, from around 400 to 700 nanometers. The SWIR region, on the other hand, extends from 1,000 to 2,500 nanometers. Specially designed cameras can take images of objects that reflect waves in the SWIR region. They are used for improving night vision, in airborne remote sensing, and deep tissue imaging. The cameras also help assess the composition and quality of silicon wafers, building structures and even food produce.

“These cameras are typically difficult to manufacture and are quite expensive, as they are made of inorganic semiconductor photodiode arrays interconnected with read-out integrated circuitry,” says Roland Hany of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology.

Hany worked with colleagues in Switzerland and Italy to design an organic dye-based ‘SWIR upconversion device’ that efficiently converts shortwave infrared light to visible light.

The device uses organic (materials made with carbon) components: a squaraine dye-coated flexible substrate combined with a fluorescent organic light-emitting diode (OLED). When the dye absorbs SWIR waves, an electric current is generated and directly converted into a visible image by the OLED.

The team had to play with the molecular composition of several squaraine dyes to get them to absorb specific wavelengths. Ultimately, they synthesized squaraine dyes that absorb SWIR light beyond 1,200 nanometers and remained stable up to 200 degrees Celsius. The finished dye-based device performed stably for several weeks under normal laboratory conditions.

“All-organic upconverters could lead to applications that can’t be realized with current technology. For example, invisible night vision devices can be directly integrated into car windscreens without affecting the visual field,” explains Hany.

The team is now working on shifting the dye’s absorption further into the SWIR range. They are also using machine learning techniques to find new dye molecules capable of sensing SWIR waves. Finally, the team aims to improve device stability and sensitivity.
