The USB Promoter Group announced the pending release of the USB4 specification, based on Intel’s Thunderbolt protocol. This enhances the transfer of both video and data, while doubling total available throughput to 40Gbps. Cadence developed the new USB4 VIP based on more than a year of collaborative work with early adopters of this new specification. The collaboration with early adopters has led to the availability of a proven and mature verification IP that reduces design risks and shortens the implementation of the new standard. Additionally, the Cadence VIP for USB4 includes TripleCheck technology, which provides users with a verification plan that is linked to the specification and a comprehensive test suite to ensure compliance with the USB4 specification.
