Fresco Logic Inc. is rolling out a two-port USB 3.0 host controller with PCIe Gen II interface.

The FL1009, successor to Fresco's FL1000 controller, is based on the company's GoXtream xHCI accelerator engine. The architecture allows each USB port to sustain full bandwidth of USB 3.0 throughput and provides headroom to support next-generation true 1080p high-definition video streaming applications and UASP-enabled storage devices.

FL1009 supports xHCI Rev 1.0 specification, USB 3.0 Rev 1.0 specification and is backward compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. On the host-side interface, the FL1000 is compatible with all systems that implement PCIe Gen II and Gen I specification.

The FL1009 is driver compatible with previously announced FL1000 PCIe to USB 3.0 host controller, Fresco Logic said.
