Introduction to the MCCI USB DataPump



MCCI strategy includes a leadership role in the emergence and uptake of USB 3.0 SuperSpeed. The MCCI USB DataPump® supports USB 3.0 SuperSpeed technology. SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10 times the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB as well as improved power efficiency for device-centric designs.

Superior embedded software for USB devices

The MCCI USB DataPump is a complete, portable firmware package that provides a total solution for engineers designing high-performance multi-function USB peripheral devices. The MCCI USB DataPump encapsulates low level chip-control code and high-level device class support in a comprehensive framework, allowing peripheral firmware development engineers to focus on implementing peripheral functions.

MCCI® presently supports the following USB silicon:
