VIA VL810 SuperSpeed Hub Controller

The VIA VL810 SuperSpeed Hub Controller is the industry first integrated single chip solution that supports the higher transfer rates of the new USB 3.0 specification. With maximum data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps, or ten times the throughput available to USB 2.0 based devices, the VIA VL810 expands a PC’s USB capability by allowing more than one device to be connected to each host port. One upstream port and four downstream ports support not just SuperSpeed transfer, but are also backwards compatible with previous USB specifications and offer support for Hi-Speed (480Mbps), Full-Speed (12Mbps), and Low-Speed (1.5Mbps) traffic.
