Cypress Semiconductor Corp. introduced a high-speed USB 2.0 transceiver that is designed for Intel's Monahans processor family based on the third generation Intel XScale architecture. The device is compliant with the USB 2.0 Transceiver Macrocell Interface (UTMI) standard, and is approved for the Monahans platform development kit.

The new MoBL-USB TX2 transceiver is offered in a 56-ball VFBGA (very fine pitch ball-grid array) package that measures 5-by-5mm with 0.5mm ball pitch. It also offers a suspend current at 15V. The device suits battery-powered applications such as cellphones, PDAs, smart phones, portable media players and handheld GPS.

The transceiver offers features including: support for USB 2.0 high-speed (480Mbps) and full-speed (12Mbps); serial-to-parallel and parallel-to-serial conversions; 8bit unidirectional, 8bit bidirectional or 16bit bidirectional external data interface; synchronous field and EOP detection on receive packets, and generation on transmit packets; and data and clock recovery from the USB serial stream.

The MoBL-USB TX2 transceiver (CY7C68000A) is expected to sample in May and ship in production volumes in June 2006. In addition to the 56-ball VFBGA, the device is offered in a 56-lead QFN package. Pricing in 10,000-unit volumes for the MoBL-USB TX2 transceiver starts at $1.49.
