GL3521
Overview
Worldwide No.1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Hub Controller
with Ensured Compatibility and Advanced Fast-Charging


Genesys GL3521 is a 4-port, low-power, and configurable hub controller. It is compliant with the USB3.1 Gen 1 specification. GL3521 integrates Genesys Logic self-developed USB 3.1 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. GL3521 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, GL3521 has built-in 5V to 3.3V and 5V to 1.2V regulators, which saves customers’ BOM cost, and eases for PCB design.

GL3521 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 GL3521 charging downstream ports (CDP ) or dedicated charging port (DCP ). It can enable systems to fast charge handheld devices even during “Sleep” and “Power-off” modes.
