The key to smaller computers that use less power is miniaturization. The smaller the components inside your computer are, the more components can be fit inside the limited space available. CPUs and GPUs are always moving towards smaller scale manufacturing for power savings and performance.

RapidBridge has announced that it has taped out the world's smallest USB 2.0/3.0 PHY. The new product is the newest member of the company's LiquidPHY product family. The new product meets or exceeds the USB 3.0 Super Speed specifications.

“We are very proud of our engineering team’s accomplishments in developing the world’s smallest, yet feature rich, USB PHY,” said Massif Tayebi, CEO of Rapid Bridge. “We believe our USB PHY will create significant value for our customers. The size and performance advantages are unprecedented and we invite chip designers to see for themselves. We are very excited about the opportunities before us.”
