EZ-USB® FX3™ USB Controller

Cypress Semiconductor's EZ-USB FX3 peripheral controller allows developers to overcome bandwidth and throughput issues by enabling them to add USB 3.1 Gen1 (5.0 Gbps) to any system. FX3 has a fully configurable, General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II) that can interface with any processor, ASIC, image sensor, or FPGA. It provides easy and glueless connectivity to popular industry interfaces such as synchronous slave FIFO, asynchronous SRAM, and others. With more applications requiring a larger data path, FX3 provides a solution that is both flexible and easy to design.
