On July 14 - July 16, MCCI will exhibit at Wireless Japan. We will demonstrate two different MCCI ExpressDisk™ Driver products:

The MCCI ExpressDisk BOT Driver utilizes the Windows-provided SCSIport/Storport Driver to deliver better performance. The driver combines multiple Read/Write requests into a single request to achieve the highest throughput, achieving up to a 30% better performance when compared to other BOT drivers.

The MCCI ExpressDisk UAS Driver is a complete replacement for Mass Storage Class and utilizes the Windows-provided SCSIport/Storport Driver to achieve maximum data throughput speed. The MCCI ExpressDisk UAS Driver can achieve 300% of BOT throughput.

We will also demonstrate the MCCI Catena® 1910. This Catena is an HSIC (High Speed Inter-Chip USB) Device, Host Emulator, and Protocol Analyzer. It allows an HSIC host/device pair and supporting software to execute in a local, real-time environment, and includes USB transaction-level data capture. It is connected to a host PC and controlled via PCIe. In "Host mode - Analyzer," the PC software views the UUT (Unit Under Test) as a HS USB device. In "Analyzer Mode" the Catena 1910 supports traffic capture of the HSIC bus for traffic flowing between two other HSIC devices, e.g. an applications processor and a modem. The Catena 1910 supports all standard USB operational characteristics, including LPM. The demonstration will show operation with an HSIC hub and mass storage device.

On July 15, MCCI is sponsoring a seminar "Advances in USB,"  also at the Big Sight. Speakers at the July 15 seminar are:

  • MCPC Secretary General Masahiro Hataguchi ("Welcome")
