Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking Microchip’s new SuperSpeed Certified USB3 Controller Hub which is the world’s first with on-chip programmable memory and certified four-port USB3 Hub with 3 additional USB2 lanes.
Microchip’s four-member USB553XB-5000 family is the industry’s most flexible, as it includes a seven-port hybrid version with a certified four-port USB3 hub and three additional USB2 lanes. The remaining three family members feature two-, three- and four-port USB3 hubs, respectively, providing a broad migration path for the designers of PCs, peripherals, computing platforms, storage solutions, networking and consumer devices, set-top boxes, docking stations and monitors. The designers of computing and peripheral platforms are rapidly adopting the USB3 standard for its increased bandwidth of 5Gbps and higher-power charging ports. This family lowers system costs and speeds development by integrating programmable memory that allows OEMs to quickly customize their products and ensure operating-system compatibility, without the added cost, complexity and board space of off-chip memory.
Additionally, the hybrid controller provides the flexibility to create applications with both USB3 and USB2 ports, such as mobile and PC docking stations, monitors and other peripherals. The availability of two-, three- and four-port USB3 family members enables designers to easily migrate to the best UCH3 for each design within their platform.
