USB superspeed peripherals

        Hi everyone, I'm currently designing a Cypress FX3 breakout board (just a USB type A connector, FX3 chip and I2C/UART/GPIF outputs). So I have 2 questions: 1. Are there any existing designs for such a board? 2. I'm going to release the board as open source hardware. Are there any legal obstacles for me to do so? This is a question to Cypress employees. Thank you.

 Hi,

   

It looks like you are going to make a low cost DVK with FX3 and sell it as open source hardware. I don't think there are any issues in doing so.

   

One of such design that I know of can be found in the link given below:

Thanks,

Thanks for your answer, Sai.

While I appreciate your link, it's in no way an open hardware, unfortunatelly. But thanks anyway 🙂

Best regards,
Dmitriy.
