產品簡述

Genesys GL3525 is a 7-port, low-power, and configurable hub controller. It is compliant with the USB 3.2 specification. GL3525 integrates Genesys Logic self-developed USB 3.2 Gen 1 Super Speed transmitter/receiver physical layer (PHY) and USB 2.0 High-Speed PHY. It supports Super Speed, Hi-Speed, and Full-Speed USB connections and is fully backward compatible to all USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 hosts. GL3525 also implements multiple TT* (Note1) architecture providing dedicated TT* to each downstream (DS) port, which guarantees Full-Speed(FS) data passing bandwidth when multiple FS devices perform heavy loading operations. Furthermore, GL3525 has built-in 5V to 3.3V and 5V to 1.2V regulators, which saves customers’ BOM cost, and eases for PCB design.

 

GL3525 features the native fast-charging and complies with USB-IF battery charging specification rev1.2, it could fast-charge Apple, Samsung Galaxy devices, and any device complaint with BC1.2/1.1. It also allows portable devices to draw up to 1.5A from GL3525 charging downstream ports (CDP1) or dedicated charging port (DCP2). It can enable systems to fast charge handheld devices even during “Sleep” and “Power-off” modes.

*Note: TT (transaction translator) implements the control logic defined in Section 11.14 ~ 11.22 of USB specification revision 2.0. TT basically handles the unbalanced traffic speed between the USPORT (operating in HS) and DSPORTS (operating in FS/LS) of hub.

 

 

1 CDP, charging downstream port, the Battery Charging Rev.1.2-compliant USB port that does data communication and charges device up to 1.5A.

2 DCP, dedicated charging port, the Battery Charging Rev.1.2-compliant USB port that only charges devices up to 1.5A, similar to wall chargers.
