[Discuss-gnuradio] Cypress publicly announces USB 3.0 FX3 controller

For those folks who keep track of new hardware devices that could be amenable to building SDR systems, Cypress Semi has finally publicly announced their USB 3.0 FX3 SuperSpeed USB controller:


This controller provides the same sort of GPIF interface as used on the original USRP1 to provide a digital data path up to a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed host device (i.e., a PC).  Real-world sustained data rates for USB 3.0 SuperSpeed devices have been hitting close to 300 MB/sec (and that is before you get into the new bulk streaming mode).  Could make for a very interesting multi-transmit/multi-receive system (assuming you've got a PC that can actually do something with that much data coming in, which is still a big challenge).
