USB2 OTG Host Connectivity

If a simple design is the goal, USB2 port 0 can serve as a USB host. This allows combining host and device mode to be delivered through just one connector (typically a micro-A or -B connector). The USB2 interface is able to transmit data at 480Mbps. For higher speeds a USB3 is necessary.
Request for host mode is signaled through the ID pin on the USB connector and routed to the USB2_ID_PMIC signal on the module. To power devices in USB host mode, the OTG_EN signal enables +VBUS on the USB connector through a load switch with set 1 A current limit. The +VBUS source can be a dedicated boost regulator fed by +VSYS, or if +VSYS has a minimum of 4.75 V, +VSYS can be used as a +VBUS source. It is good design practice to add an ESD protection diode, a PTC fuse, and EMI filtering to +VBUS, and to add common-mode chokes with built-in ESD diodes to USB data signals.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
