MCCI Showcases Fully Windows-Compatible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI Software
Demonstration at CES 2010 USB Tech Zone

LAS VEGAS, Nev. and ITHACA, N.Y., January 5, 2010.

MCCI® Corporation, the world’s leading developer of USB connectivity to the portable consumer device industry, announces its fully Windows-compatible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI host software stack.

MCCI has been at the forefront of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 development since the standard was announced in November 2008. MCCI demonstrated SuperSpeed host and device solutions at the USB Dev Con in Tokyo in May 2009. In September 2009 at the Intel Development Forum, MCCI demonstrated its high performance USB 3.0 software optimized for a best-in-class performance. From January 7 – January 10, at Booth #30769 in the LVCC South Hall 3, MCCI is demonstrating its Windows-compatible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI host stack.

“MCCI is used to breaking new ground and supporting cutting-edge development,” said Terry Moore, MCCI CEO. “Not only will customers benefit from high-performance USB 3.0, but also retain backward compatibility with billions of USB2.0 products on the market. Unlike other early solutions that utilize separate, standalone USB2.0 controllers, our fully-compliant USB 3.0 solution utilizes the same path for USB 2.0 products, reducing product cost.”

An additional MCCI Mass Storage Class driver combined with MCCI’s SuperSpeed host stack or Microsoft Windows USB 2.0 host stack improves storage device throughput by up to 25%. Read speeds of up to 270 MB/s have been achieved in early tests. Both the MCCI SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI host stack and MCCI Mass Storage Class driver are available to product developers in January 2010.
