New SuperSpeed USB Developments Increase Speed and Power Delivery

Today at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF), the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) announced that recent USB specifications and new SuperSpeed USB certified products enhance USB applications across multiple computing platforms and demonstrate continued industry support and increased consumer adoption for SuperSpeed USB.

Recent SuperSpeed USB updates include a new specification development effort underway to double the data through-put performance of existing SuperSpeed USB to 10 Gbps and the now publicly available USB Power Delivery specification. The speed enhancement to SuperSpeed USB will use new cables that are fully backward compatible with existing USB connectors and cables. The USB Power Delivery specification is also being adopted by manufacturers and products are currently being developed that will help simplify the lives of consumers, by providing a single-cable for data and power delivery up to 100 watts. New products will have USB Power Delivery hardware inside and use a power delivery-enabled cable. The USB-IF and USB 3.0 Promoter Group drive ongoing innovation such as these developments to improve user experience and connectivity performance.

“The USB-IF recognizes consumer demand for a simplified single-cable solution to power and simultaneously transfer data to their laptops, tablets and smartphones,” said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and COO. “With the new SuperSpeed USB enhancement to increase performance up to 10 Gbps data rate, coupled with the USB Power Delivery specification capable of delivering up to 100 watts of power to USB-enabled devices, consumers will soon be able to have one USB cable to support all their needs.”

Additionally, SuperSpeed USB product certification continues to increase dramatically with more than 850 products now certified, including the first USB 3.0 Hub Silicon products. This continued investment from member companies has enabled the USB-IF to achieve worldwide consumer awareness with USB products. These developments and certification milestones continue to affirm SuperSpeed USB as the class leading I/O standard.

“USB continues to anticipate consumer need with relevant capabilities and increased speeds, including the new SuperSpeed USB at 10 Gbps transfer rate and Power Delivery specifications,” said Greg Potter, Analyst, Multimedia Research Group. “The delivery of USB 3.0 certified products is continuing to grow exponentially, with over 1 billion USB 3.0 products shipping by the end of 2013. This huge growth is a testament to the benefits, ease of use, and continued relevance of USB technology. Industry adoption will only expand as USB continues to be the standard to which all other I/O connections are compared.”

The USB-IF and member companies will showcase their latest USB developments during IDF being held April 10-11, 2013 in Beijing. To learn more about SuperSpeed USB, stop by the USB Community at IDF Beijing or visit www.usb.org.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
