On-the-Go cores meet the mark
ARC International's full-speed USB On-the-Go products have received USB-IF certification
"This is the first time the USB Implementers Forum has offered USB compliance testing for full-speed OTG", said Andy Haines, Senior Vice President Marketing at ARC International. "It is our goal to submit all our USB technology for compliance testing at the earliest opportunity, so our customers can be confident products will work as specified without them having to spend additional design cycles on their implementation".
ARC's USB FS OTG product offers the following benefits: the lowest gate count (inclusive of endpoint buffers) in real-world, full system implementations; DMA included; the most mature product available today; a full suite of verification tools; and the most mature OTG software stack.
The ARC stack can use task, event, message passing, interrupt or semaphore based OS structures, and offers a thin hardware adaptation layer for ease of porting.
The stack can work stand-alone in those systems that do not use an operating system.
ARC's USB FS OTG product is delivered as fully synthesisable RTL code, available as VHDL or Verilog, and is available with BVCI or AHB interfaces.
Delivery also includes driver source code, a full verification suite and extensive documentation.
Earlier this year, the company introduced the ARC CertiPHY programme whereby the industry's leading PHY manufacturers work with ARC to verify that their PHY works with ARC's USB technology.
This programme was introduced to aid SoC developers with interoperability testing which, in turn, eases USB-IF certification.
