Overview:
As 5Gbps SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity is
increasingly being adopted in the market, more and more system implementers are
considering adding USB 3.0 hubs to increase their designs’ connectivity to many
peripheral devices. This webinar will provide a brief overview of the USB 3.0
hub architecture compared to USB 2.0. It will also highlight the design
considerations and features that a USB 3.0 hub can provide, including low-power
states and power consumption, integrated support for Battery Charging 1.2 for
mobile devices, and cost saving considerations.

What attendees
will learn:

Attendees will become familiar with overall USB 3.0 hub
features and benefits. The following topics will be covered:

  • Overview USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0 hub architecture
  • Performance improvement in USB 3.0 hubs
  • Low-power states and consumption introduction
  • Implementation of USB 3.0 hubs to support different charging features
  • Cost saving considerations

Duration: 50 minutes + Q&A

Who should attend:
System designers who would like to
include SuperSpeed USB 3.0 hubs for adding higher connectivity and charging
features to their systems.
