  MCCI Announces Support for PLX USB 3.0 Device Controllers

ITHACA, N.Y. -- February 5, 2013

MCCI^® Corporation, a leading developer of USB drivers and firmware for the
high-volume personal computer and portable device markets, today announced
that its TrueTask^® USB device software platform is now available for PLX
Technology’s (PLX) USB 3.0 controllers.

TrueTask USB is a highly portable, fast, efficient platform designed to
support a variety of hardware. With today’s announcement, designers using
PLX^® USB SuperSpeed controllers have a solid USB platform for creation of a
wide variety of peripherals, including tablets, portable media players, video
conferencing systems, PCs, notebooks, mobile phones, and more.

“Platforms, unlike stacks, have APIs that are stable across releases and can
be reused across changes in device controller silicon,” said Terry Moore, CEO,
MCCI. “MCCI’s USB device stack is portable to any embedded system without
source code changes, so it saves considerable time and costs for system
integrators, unlike stacks where you have to re-code for each product and each
update. System integrators can leverage their investments for quicker
time-to-market and profit.”

“TrueTask USB is a complete end-to-end solution that includes the services and
expertise essential to effective design with PLX’s USB 3.0 controllers,” said
Jimmy Chou, marketing director for USB products at PLX. “Designers could spend
time porting another vendor’s USB stack, or develop one in-house, but MCCI’s
solution is pre-tested and pre-verified, enabling a focus not just on USB
connectivity but also on product differentiation.”

PLX USB controllers offer superior performance, strict compliance to industry
standards and dramatic power savings. They’re widely used in: printers,
portable media players, GPS systems, TV tuners, PCs, laptops, notebooks, WLAN
devices, mobile phones, digital cameras and camcorders.

MCCI offers design consultation, integration and customization services and is
one of only nine certified USB-IF test houses worldwide, offering extensive
testing and verification services for USB developers. MCCI’s USB software has
been tested with tens of thousands of devices, and is installed in over one
billion USB devices. The global USB installed base is vast, with over ten
billion devices shipped to date and hundreds of thousands of different kinds
of devices, which have been deployed in nearly one-billion products.

The solution is available for Windows, Windows Embedded, Windows CE, Linux,
and real-time operating systems, and embedded systems without operating
systems.
