CES: USB 3.0 Behind The Scenes

We know a couple of you have been asking about the tech behind the show, and we managed to spot an FPGA (in this case, the Xilinx Virtex 5) serving as the core of a demo between two SuperSpeed USB Solid State drives. It was used as both a USB 3.0 hub, as well as being used to time the file transfers and get accurate speed reports. The Hi Res Shot is also available.
