7-port (4-port USB 3.0 & 3-port USB 2.0) USB HUB

  • USB 3.0 Compliant Hub
  • Supports seven downstream ports (Straight USB A receptacle connector)
    • 4-port USB 3.0
    • 3-port USB 2.0
  • SCSI I 50pin Low Density Centronics Connector Form Factor
  • Provides Upstream USB 3.0 Cable Port (Standard B-type Receptacle) lock mechanism

U3H721 hub is a 7-port, low-power, configurable Hub Controller fully compliant with the USB 3.0 Specification. The U3H721 supports 5 Gbps SuperSpeed (SS), 480 Mbps Hi-Speed (HS), 12 Mbps Full-Speed (FS) and 1.5 Mbps Low-Speed (LS) USB signalling for complete coverage of all defined USB operating speeds.

U3H721 supports the legacy USB speeds through its USB 2.0 hub controller. The new SuperSpeed hub controller operates in parallel with the USB 2.0 controller, so the 5 Gbps SuperSpeed data transfers are not affected by the slower USB 2.0 traffic.

U3H721 is configured for operation through internal default settings, where custom configurations are supported through an on-chip OTP ROM or an external SPI ROM.

U3H721 implements a dedicated Transaction Translator (TT) for each port.

Multiple Transaction Translator (MTT) provides individual TT control logics for each downstream port. This is a performance better choice for USB 2.0 Hub.

Technical Specifications
  • USB 3.0 Compliant Hub
    • USB 3.0 compliant 5 Gbps, 480 Mbps, 12 Mbps and 1.5 Mbps operation, USB pins are 5 V tolerant
