As technology innovation marches forward, new kinds of
devices, media formats, and large inexpensive storage are
converging. They require significantly more bus bandwidth to
maintain the interactive experience users have come to expect. In
addition, user applications demand a higher performance connection
between the PC and these increasingly sophisticated peripherals. USB
3.0 addresses this need by adding an even higher transfer rate to
match these new usage and devices.
USB continues to be the answer to connectivity for PC,
Consumer Electronics, and Mobile architectures. It is a fast,
bidirectional, low-cost, dynamically attachable interface that is
consistent with the requirements of the PC platforms of today and
SuperSpeed USB brings significant performance
enhancements to the ubiquitous USB standard, while remaining
compatible with the billions of USB enabled devices currently
deployed in the market. SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10x the data
transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, as well as improved power efficiency.
- SuperSpeed USB has a 5 Gbps signaling rate offering 10x
performance increase over Hi-Speed USB.
- SuperSpeed USB is a Sync-N-Go technology that minimizes user
- SuperSpeed USB will provide Optimized Power Efficiency.No
device polling and lower active and idle power requirements.
- SuperSpeed USB is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Devices
interoperate with USB 2.0 platforms. Hosts support USB 2.0 legacy
