Fairchild’s FUSB2500 ULPI OTG Transceiver Chip Uses Synopsys' DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY IP

Synopsys has declared that their FUSB2500 UTMI+ Low-Pin Interface (ULPI) USB On-The-Go (OTG) transceiver chip using Synopsys' DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY IP has accomplished initial-pass silicon success.

The silicon-verified DesignWare IP of Synopsys was chosen by Fairchild due to its power efficiency, compactness and innovative technical aspects like auto-detect and ULPI interface.

PHY’s adaptability helped Fairchild to effectively perform post-silicon modifications without incurring the cost of a respin metal. The DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY IP was quickly incorporated and had easier access to an expert technical assistance team of the company. These features enabled Fairchild to minimize integration issues and accelerate their time-to-market.

The FUSB2500 USB 2.0 OTG transceiver chip has been exclusively developed for the sophisticated handset segment. It features a highly complicated layout and it is Fairchild’s first 130 nm chip to be incorporated by a leading producer. Fairchild procured USB IP from Synopsys for enabling them to focus on their product delineation and cope with their 14 month product deadline. By utilizing the DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY IP of Synopsys, Fairchild successfully released their FUSB2500 transceiver chip in the market as per their time schedule.

Jerry Johnston, Fairchild’s Senior Director of Switch and Interface, has stated that due to their complicated layout needs and strict production schedule, they were looking for a collaborator with a competent IP provider like Synopsys. He mentioned that the DesignWare USB 2.0 nanoPHY IP of Synopsys provided an innovative solution for including all layout requirements and cope with their time-to-market schedule. He added that they will continue to use Synopsys' DesignWare IP in their upcoming products.

According to John Koeter, Vice President of Marketing for the Solutions Group at Synopsys, majority of their investment is on building sophisticated DesignWare USB IP with high performance to cope with the design needs of their clients and minimize integration issues.
