USB2 Device Connectivity

The USB2 port 0 is used as the default port to present the module as a USB device to host systems. This mode is also used for updating the module firmware by reading the code from a connected storage device.
The signals for the USB2 port 0 are on connector J6 (pins 6 and 8 for USB2_0_DP and USB2_0_DN). The USB device connector is a micro connector. USB2 requires a common mode choke with ESD protection on the USB2_0_DP and USB2_0_DN signals. Add ESD protection diodes, and EMI dampening ferrite or a specially designed EMI filter capacitor to USB +VBUS. It is also good design practice to put a PTC fuse in series with +VBUS.
Attach the connector +VBUS pin to the +VBUS signal on the module to wake the module when the USB is inserted. The +VBUS also needs to be connected for the DnX protocol to work. The USB2_ID_PMIC pin can be left unconnected if the USB2 port 0 is not going to be used in host mode.
