 Hello All,

   

 

   

I'm in need of a Cypress FX3 based PCI-e X4 to USB 3.0 (FX3) adapter card/interface  and/or Gerber Files, if anyone of you knows if this is in existence please ?   What led me to this decision was, while doing some searches, I came across the following Cypress Forum post:

   

FX3 device: low data rate through USB3 extension card

   

http://goo.gl/BjAObX

   

 

   

The following are " PCI-e to USB 3.0 device EXAMPLES" , but I need one based ipon the Cypress FX3 Chipset

   

 

   

Example # 1

   

" PCI-E 1X - 16X USB 3.0 PCB Board " with Extension Cable

Example # 2

   

PCI-e Express 1X to 16x Riser Extender Card Adapter +

   

SATA 15P Male to 4P Cable

   

www.ebay.com/itm/PCI-e-Express-1X-to-16x-Riser-Extender-Card-Adapter-SATA-15P-Male-to-4P-Cable-/1515...

   

 

   

Does anyone know if Cypress offers a PCI-e X4 FX3 USB 3.0 Reference/Gerber Files, or knows of a entity making a PCI-e X4 to USB 3.0 FX3 Card/Adapter/Interface please ?

   

I hope someone can assist/point me in the correct direction please.

Are you looking for the Fx3 here to behave as a USB 3.0 host card and interface to a PCIe port?

   

If so, then this is not possible. Fx3 can not act as a USB 3.0 host.

   

For Fx3 as a device, we do not have a PCIe to USB 3.0 (device) bridge.

Hello,

   

 

   

We were hoping for something like this:

   


   
        
       

   

   
     The following video claims the PE3A V3.1 version of the above does NOT support simultaneous usage of a PCIe-X device & USB 3.0.     
   
        
           
        
   
    Though I was HOPING Cypress has a PCI-e X4 to Cyopress FX3 device, similar to what you see above, I'll need to contact these guys to see, (PRAY) that PE3A V3.2 works with PCIe & USB 3.0 at the same time.   
   
        
   
    The above chicps they use is ASMedia and I guess it can do USB 3.0 to PCI-e X4 transfers:   
       
        
   
    Dam, it would be so cool if Cypress had this though.   
   
        
   
    Is this something Cypress can design ?
