10/3/2001: ROUTE gives support to the USB 2.0
ROUTE, the well-known chipsets manufacturer, has presented a new solution to give support to the USB 2.0. In particular, it is done thanks to his new chip by ROUTE VT6202; made of 0,22 microns, it is prepared for low energy consumptions (for portable PCs, for example) and gives support for up to four ports USB 2.0.
It appears in two formats: well a card PCI (v2.1) with that we will be able to update our teams easily, or already integrated to the proper motherboard; likewise, it might add this functionality to the next ROUTE chipsets.
The USB 2.0 is an alternative to connect digital cameras, printers, escáners of last generation or external hard disks. All this thanks to his valuation of transference of 480 Mbits/s, that is to say, 60 MBytes/s Por supuesto, the standard USB 2.0 is compatible "backwards" with all the compatible devices USB 1.x.
In due time, ROUTE announced that technologically Firewire was praised by already very well-established IEEE 1394 or iLink, competitor of the USB 2.0, but that it would give support to this another technology that it has not just detached. This throwing is a test of his words, although we wonder the real scope of the intentions of ROUTE. Perhaps do not be a question of technical specifications, but only a pragmatic question of selling and of selling...
