USB 3.0 comes closer to reality with 5Gbps

USB 3.0 has been expected to “arrive” for a considerable amount of time, but due to the lengthy draft certification process, and general lack of pressure to get 3.0 “SuperSpeed” devices out in the market, it wasn’t expected to become widespread until 2010. However, with NEC’s new host controller, the arrival of the new USB standard could arrive soon.

The host controller is a chip which connects the host system such as a PC to external storage, peripherals or other systems, and NEC’s new host controller (µPD720200) is based on the SuperSpeed USB standard which was finalized in November of 2008, more than eight years after the USB 2.0 spec was released.
