USB 2.0 Low Speed Buffer Up/Down Stream Difference
Jun 03rd, 2010, 5:10pm
 
Why in USB 2.0 spec, the drive loading capability is different between up and down steam facing ports?

For downstream, it is 200-600pF while for upstream it is 50-150pF?

It gives more stringent rules to downstream ports (host & HUB) since they have power supply.
While upstream ports normally is a device which get power from host or HUB. So their driving capability is less.

Hopefully it is correct.
