Fujitsu to Demonstrate Industry’s Best-Performing USB 3.0-SATA Bridge ICs at the 2011 International CES

Mon, 01/03/2011 - 7:40am
Fujitsu Semiconductor America, Inc. (FSA) will demonstrate its newest USB 3.0-SATA controller products at the 2011 International CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6 to 9.

At booth #36505 in the USB Community Section at CES, Fujitsu will present throughput and interoperability tests between the Fujitsu USB 3.0 host controllers and various motherboards and devices. Fujitsu will demonstrate the superior performance of the MB86E50 USB 3.0-SATA RAID IC in combination with the FrescoLogic FL1009B xHCI host controller chip and two RAID 0 (striping) configured SSDs. A second demonstration will highlight the high transfer speeds attainable with the Fujitsu MB86C31 series USB 3.0-SATA bridge controller IC and a single-port reference HDD/SSD system.

The MB86C31 and MB86E50 series are the newest additions to the Fujitsu USB 3.0-SATA bridge IC family. The two new bridge ICs integrate a 32-bit RISC MPU, and are available with hardware-based high-speed encryption. Both the MB86C31 and MB86E50 series deliver throughput rates up to 5Gbps, permit hot plugging of devices, and support the USB-attached SCSI (UAS) and Bulk-only Transport (BOT) protocols. Both chips also offer full legacy support for high-speed USB (480Mbps) and full-speed USB (12Mbps) devices, as well as for ATA, SATA Gen2i (3Gbps) and SATA Gen1i (1.5Gbps) drives.

The MB86C31 series has earned the USB-IF certificate of compliance with SuperSpeed USB. The series is available in two small packages – a 64-pin LQFP (7mm x 7mm) and a 48-pin QFN (6mm x 6mm) – the MB86C31 offers manufacturers a high degree of design flexibility.
