IC is one of the industry's first integrated single-chip solutions, a
bridge IC between USB 3.0 and SATA/ATA/ATAPI-based storage devices. The IC,
which translates USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 storage commands to serial ATA and
ATA/ATAPI communication protocols, complies with USB 3.0 version 1.0 and SATA
revision 2.6. The MB86C30A features low power consumption and high-speed
encryption hardware. It supports GPIO for design flexibility and SPI for
interfacing to off-chip serial Flash ROM. The supply voltage is 1.2/3.3V.
Applications include USB 3.0 external storage using SATA devices, HDD, SSD,
Blu-Ray, DVD and CD. The MB86C30A provides a simple, effective way to adapt
SATA drives for USB 3.0, boosting performance and cost-efficiency. It supports
HID class SATA Gen2i (3Gbps) and Gen1i (1.5Gbps) and ATA/ATAPI devices, and
provides ATA command pass-through functionality, along with 2TB over HDD. A
high-performance 32-bit RISC MPU is integrated on-chip. It is ideal for
connectivity applications, delivering up to 5 Gbits/s full duplex. The USB 3.0
specification — and the MB86C30A - improve power management compared with USB
2.0 devices. The host can deliver more power to devices, making it appropriate
for applications such as USB-rechargeable batteries and LED lighting. The
MB86C30A has several distinctive features including optimal security based on
the National Institute of Standards (NIST) standard AES code/decode hardware
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
