GL854G is Genesys Logic’s premium 7-port hub solution which fully complies with Universal Serial Bus Specification Revision 2.0.  GL854G implements multiple TT* (Note1) architecture that provide dedicated TT* to each downstream (DS) ports, which guarantee Full-Speed(FS) data passing bandwidth when multiple FS device perform heavy loading operations.  The controller inherits Genesys Logic’s cutting edge technology on cost and power efficient serial interface design. GL854G has proven compatibility, lower power consumption figure and better cost structure above all USB 2.0 hub solutions worldwide.


GL854G implements multiple hub configuration features onto internal mask ROM, which traditionally requires external EEPROM. The microprocessor detects general purpose I/O (GPIO) status during the initial stage to configure hub settings such as (1) declare of compound device (2) gang/individual mode selection…etc.  External EEPROM can be removed if no vendor specified PID/VID or product string is required for the application.


GL854G provides 12MHz clock output that can be used as a reference clock source for multi-chip, hub compound applications. The output clock provides enough driving capacity to support up to 2 devices that connected to the downstream port. The chip-to-chip clock trace is relatively sensitive to PCB noise. Please refer to design guide for PCB layout suggestions.       


*Note 1: TT (transaction translator) is the main traffic control engine in an USB 2.0 hub to handle the unbalanced traffic speed between the upstream port and the downstream ports.
