Testing the new CH569 USB3 device/host chip #USB #Development

HydraUSB3 V1 is an open source developer kit for the WCH CH569 MCU to experiment with streaming / high-speed protocols like HSPI and SerDes through USB3.

It allows to test and discover the MCU main features, like:

  • USB3 SS built-in PHY (5Gbps) and USB2 built-in PHY FS/LS/HS (480Mbps)
    • Can be used as Device or Host.
    • HydraUSB3 dedicated test firmware support USB2 HS and USB3 SS (in a transparent way) basic/bare metal stack in Device Bulk mode with Burst for USB3 Super Speed best performances.
  • High Speed Parallel Interface (HSPI) up to 3.8Gbps with unique fast bidirectional parallel bus 8, 16 & 32bits up to 120MHz
  • SerDes (up to 1.20Gbps officially, up to 1.38Gbps non officially)
  • eMMC / SDCard / SDIO (up to 96MHz 8bits mode with option/extension)
    • Can be used over USB3 SS for ultra fast communication/transfer of data.

  1. Hey, at least it’s not an 8051! Actually RISC-V, which there are actually good C compilers for 🤣
