USB 3.0—Optimize system performance and user experience

USB 3.0—Optimize system performance and user experience

With the value propositions described above, USB 3.0 can enable new usage models as well as improves on existing ones. Apart from the ability to sideload media content at 10x the speed of a USB 2.0 system, one of the early applications identified for USB 3.0 is content/code flashing during manufacturing. The cost to manufacture a mobile handheld device strongly correlates to the amount of time it needs to spend in the manufacturing line, and the most time consuming part of the process is flash programming and preloading content. The flashing process is often done by USB, and today, USB 2.0 is widely used in the production line. Not only will USB 3.0 flash phones at 10x the speed, it can also be used to flash multiple devices at the same time. Ultimately, USB 3.0 can significantly lower manufacturing cost.
