USB Boards

Orange Tree's Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 and USB 3.0 FPGA boards are ideally suited to interconnect between a host and a real-time embedded system. The newest ZestSC3 board features a large Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA with the Cypress FX3 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 controller. The ZestSC1 and ZestSC2 boards feature high density Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGAs and the Cypress EZ-USB FX2 Hi-Speed USB microcontroller.

Our USB interface boards provide high performance connectivity in a wide range of applications:
