Why USB4?

Why USB4?

Understand the market drivers behind the new 40 Gbps USB4 standard. USB4 uses the USB Type-C cable and connector for blazing fast speeds. The single cable provides data, video and power while supporting multiple protocols, including USB, DisplayPort, PCI Express, and Thunderbolt.

 

 

USB 3.2 Protocol Overview

USB 3.2 Protocol Overview

Learn about the need for USB 3.2, how the protocol can help your design achieve its need for speed, what target applications the latest protocol applies to, and the changes that will happen to particular layers, including the physical layer, link layer, and hub.

USB 3.1 Protocol Overview

USB 3.1 Protocol Overview

Get an in-depth look at the USB 3.1 changes to the specification layers, including the physical layer (Type-C connector, repeaters), link layer (new encoding schemes and traffic classes), protocol layer (multiple INs), and hub (extra buffering and packet arbitration).

Why USB 3.0?

Why USB 3.0?

Understand the drivers behind the development of faster USB technology. 

USB 3.0 Protocol Overview

USB 3.0 Overview

This session introduces basic USB design concepts and the new features in USB 3.0 that designers need to understand. The session describes cables, connectors, how USB products work together, and how USB is architected as a bus. 

USB 3.0 Functional Layer

USB 3.0 Functional Layer

View this session for an explanation of how USB stacks and drivers structure data to be handled by the protocol layer hardware. 

USB 3.0 Protocol Layer Packets

USB 3.0 Protocol Layer – Part I

This session describes the different packet types, how they are organized, and how they are used in IN and OUT transactions. 

USB 3.0 Protocol Layer Transactions

USB 3.0 Protocol Layer – Part II

This session explains how the USB control, bulk, interrupt, and isochronous transfers are handled. The new USB 3.0 streaming feature is also explained in detail. 

USB 3.0 Link Layer

USB 3.0 Link Layer

This session explains how the link layer manages the port-to-port flow of data between the host and the device. 

USB 3.0 Physical Layer

USB 3.0 Physical Layer

This session explains how the USB 3.0 electrical layer encodes digital data for transmission over a cable and decodes analog data into digital data for the link layer.
