Specifically designed to meet the USB 2.0 standard, the GT3200 analog PHY and high-speed serial data communication IC, enables designers of 480Mbps USB peripherals to improve their time-to-market. The device also reduces the risk of analog integration by partitioning the digital and analog portions of the system using the USB 2.0 UTMI specification.

The GT3200 also draws 60mA under fully-loaded conditions in high-speed mode, satisfying the power requirement of bus-powered USB peripherals. It is suitable for use in networking, computing, consumer electronics, and embedded system applications.

To sustain the fast 480Mbps serial data rate of USB 2.0, the GT3200 provides flexible building block that handles the analog interface issues, and supports features such as "suspend" and "remote wake-up" for power-saving capability.

The 64-pin QFP device requires an external resistor and a 12MHz crystal to generate the on-chip reference clock. It can be configured using either an 8-bit or 16-bit interface.

The company is also offering the GT3100, a complementary USB 2.0 IP macrocell, providing a path to integration for ASIC and SoC solutions. The core is available on a variety of leading-edge foundry processes from TSMC and UMC.

The GT3200 is priced at $3.49 in 10,000-piece quantities.
