DesignWare Wireless USB Device Controller

Wireless Standards Supported: based on the Certified Wireless USB specification from the

Synopsys DesignWare® Wireless USB (WiUSB) Controller IP, based on the Certified
Wireless USB specification from the USB-IF, provides designers with a high-bandwidth WiUSB
IP core for SoC integration. The WiUSB Controller enables a wide range of portable
electronics or PC peripherals
the ability to connect without the need for cables and delivers conservative timing for
implementation into a broad range of ASIC and FPGA technologies.

The full-featured, synthesizable DesignWare WiUSB Controller
is designed to the WiMedia Alliance Ultra-wideband (UWB) Common Radio Platform and
includes all the digital logic required to integrate Certified Wireless USB IP into your
design. It includes a WiMedia MAC-PHY interface to enable interoperability with standard,
discrete WiMedia PHYs. In addition, the AMBA® 2.0 AHB™ interface in the
DesignWare WiUSB Controller allows for fast system integration.

Synopsys designed its DesignWare WiUSB IP core using low-power flows and a low-power
architecture to minimize area and power consumption. An extensive verification
process, which includes simulation and hardware interoperability testing, enables Synopsys
to deliver a high-quality IP core, which lowers overall integration risk and speeds time
to results. As a technical contributor to the Certified Wireless USB specification and a
Member of the WiMedia Alliance standards committee, Synopsys focuses on delivering the
highest quality, interoperable wireless USB IP for our customers.
