I’m really pleased to announce that we are demonstrating our USB 3.0 Host, Hub and Device at IDF in San Francisco this week.
The xHCI Host is running on the Linux operating system with the open source Linux drivers you can find here written by Sarah Sharp.
The USB 3.0 Hub controller we demonstrated was connected to a USB 3.0 Host from the USB-IF. The Hub was connected to 3 downstream peripherals including a USB 3.0 Mass Storage Device, USB 2.0 Flash Drive (off-the-shelf) and USB 1.1 (or LS) Mouse. We were able to transfer a large video file and view it from the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 drive, and also transfer a file from the USB 2.0 Flash Drive, and use the USB 1.1 Mouse for the demonstration.
