TI chip gets USB 2.0 certification

An energy-efficient digital signal processor (DSP) from Texas Instruments has received USB 2.0 "full-speed certification" from the USB Implementers Forum, the chipmaker said Thursday. According to the company, the certification of the TMS320C5509 DSP allows gadgets, such as digital cameras and digital camcorders, to reach data transfer rates of up to 12 megabits per second when working with other USB-compliant devices such as PCs, set-top boxes and digital-media systems. Samples of the DSP are now available, and full production is set to begin in the first quarter. The chips will sell for $18 each in volume.
