Leap Motion Selects Cypress’s EZ-USB® FX3™ Solution For Controller Components

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced that Leap Motion has selected Cypress’s EZ-USB® FX3™ solution for its 3-D motion sensing and control technology. The Leap Motion controller provides unparalleled accuracy, persistence, and low latency, making it the world’s most accurate 3D motion control technology. Cypress’s programmable FX3 solution provides Leap Motion with a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface for transferring image sensor data to a computer, contributing to the real-time tracking beneficial for an exceptional user experience.

Named by Popular Mechanics as one of “The Top 10 Tech Breakthroughs of 2012,” Leap Motion’s controller creates a three-dimensional interaction space that allows users to control their computer with intuitive hand and finger movements. Leap Motion captures the precise movements of all 10 fingers to 1/100 th millimeter – smaller than the tip of a pin. The Leap Motion controller’s USB port leverages the Cypress FX3 solution and can connect to any Mac or PC computer with either USB 2.0 or 3.0 capability.

Inside its small (1 inch by 3 inches by 1/2 inch) form factor, the Leap Motion controller contains two image sensors that work with the Cypress FX3 device to capture 16-bit wide data. The Cypress FX3 solution packetizes the data in USB Video Class (UVC) format and sends it to the user’s computer via either a USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port. Leap Motion’s patented 3-D motion control software then processes the data in real time to create 3-D motion controls.

“Leap Motion set a high standard when we evaluated component providers for our controller. Our ground-breaking software requires hardware that provides extremely fast processing power to offer users real-time 3-D motion control at a level never experienced before,” said Michael Buckwald, co-founder and CEO of Leap Motion. “The programmability of the Cypress FX3 solution helped us create a simple and elegant hardware design for the Leap Motion device, while also keeping bill-of-material costs low.”
