Product Overview

PP3380-AB (USB3380-AB Evaluation Board)


The PP3380-AB is evaluation board for USB 3380-AB, a PCI Express Gen 2 to USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Peripheral Controller. It features one PCI Express Gen 2 x1 port and one USB 3.0 SuperSpeed client port. The PP3380-AB provides a matching bandwidth at 5 GT/s between the PCI Express Gen 2 bus and the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed bus. The controller can easily add a USB 3.0 client port to an existing PCI Express system, as well as convert an existing PCI Express function (endpoint) to a USB 3.0 product. The USB 3380 can configure the PCI Express port as one x1 upstream port or one x1 downstream port. The flexibility allows different system configurations to achieve the maximum performance of the product.
