August 23, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Cypress Semiconductor Corp.'s (UK) EZ-USB FX2 peripheral controller has successfully passed the full suite of compliance tests set by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). It becomes the first high-speed USB microcontroller to be certified by the USB-IF, allowing Cypress to use the USB 2.0 certification logo.

EZ-USB FX2 will also be added to the USB-IF Integrators List, signifying to peripheral vendors that the EZ-USB FX2 has met the strict specifications for high- and full-speed interface devices.

"USB 2.0 is a solution that delivers real benefits over other interface technologies," said Jason Ziller, Intel's technology initiatives manager and chairman of the USB-IF. "By passing USB-IF compliance testing, Cypress will be a significant contributor in driving USB 2.0 toward ubiquity in PC connectivity."
