NEC Electronics America today announced it will highlight their USB 3.0 solutions for consumer electronics at the CES 2010.
NEC Electronics will demonstrate the USB 3.0 host controller (µPD720200), the industry's first USB-IF-certified USB 3.0 product.
The CES demo setup will feature a laptop computer with two USB 3.0 ports, with one port sending a video file at the SuperSpeed transfer rate to a USB 3.0 external storage device. To demonstrate the backward compatibility of the USB 3.0 host controller, the second port will send the same video file to a USB 2.0 external storage device for comparison.
Samples of customers' motherboards and cards using NEC Electronics' USB 3.0 device also will be on exhibit.
NEC Electronics introduced the industry's first USB 3.0 host controller device in May 2009, and confirmed certification from the USB-IF in September 2009.
USB 3.0 prototype devices will support data transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 transfer speeds, and also will support backward compatibility in consumer electronic devices based on the current USB specification.
CES 2010 will start on 7th of January 2010 and lasts until 10th. Of course CES news are already pouring in. Read them in our CES 2010 section.
