Synopsys Shows World’s First USB 3.2 Demo with 20Gbps Speeds

Systems design company Synopsys has provided an early look at the potential performance of USB 3.2, which was announced in July of last year. The latest USB specification is unique in that it supports multi-lane operation (two lanes of 5Gbps or two lanes of 10Gbps).

When these products do emerge, they will utilize commodity Type-C cables. Synopsys was very specific about the cables used in the demo. The company tells us that it used off-the-shelf Belkin USB 3.1 Type-C cables, which are the same as you can purchase at Target or other big box retails stores today.
