Benefits of VIA Vectro VT6202

Multi-functionality
The four downstream ports and full legacy support enables the running of multiple high-speed peripherals simultaneously.

Simplicity
A simple, low-cost peripheral connection interface for all USB 2.0-enabled regular PC peripherals as well as the new generation of higher bandwidth devices.

Energy-Efficiency
Advanced power management features exert control over I/O power consumption, ensuring the benefits of the VIA Vectro VT6212 even in low power applications.

Flexibility
The option of an add-in card or a chipset installed directly onto the mainboard provides the most flexible approach of installing this recognized communications standard for system builders.


Description

Compliant with USB Specification Revision 2.0 and providing enhanced performance through four DMA engines with pipelined control, the VIA Vectro VT6202 USB2.0 Host Contollers delivers consistently high data transfer rates of up to 480Mbps to each of the four downstream USB2.0 ports, supporting multiple connectivity with USB2.0 based peripheral devices.

Incorporating two Universal Host Controller Interface (UHCI) cores for full signaling and one Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) core for high-speed signaling, the VIA Vectro VT6202 is a multi-functional PCI device that utilizes the exceptional bandwidth of USB2.0 to support a wide range of high-speed peripherals, including high resolution video, webcams, digital cameras, next-generation scanners and printers and high-density storage devices.

The VIA Vectro VT6202 root hub consists of four downstream facing ports with integrated physical layer transceiver and legacy support, enabling simultaneous operation of multiple peripheral devices. The VIA Vectro VT6202 is fully backward compatible with the USB1.1 specification to ensure seamless connectivity of legacy USB devices.

Based on VIA's low power architecture and advanced process technology using a 0.22 micron CMOS process, the VIA Vectro VT6202 features enhanced management of I/O power consumption and making it suitable for mobile systems where battery life is critical, and in power sensitive applications.

Supporting the 32-bit PCI-Bus Power Management Interface Specification, the VIA Vectro VT6202 is available as a 4-port PCI USB2.0 add-in card or as a discrete USB2.0 host controller for installation on the mainboard, offering OEMs and system integrators flexibility in designing cost-effective solutions to satisfy the peripheral interface requirements of desktops, mobile systems and other host platforms.

The VIA Vectro VT6202 is available as a 128-Pin PQFP (VT6202) and 128-Pin LQFP (VT6202L), supporting firmware application.

Support for the VIA Vectro VT6202 is built into Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 2000.
