Description for the TUSB2046B

The TUSB2046x is a 3.3-V CMOS hub device that provides one upstream port and fourdownstream ports in compliance with the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification as a full-speedhub. Because this device is implemented with a digital state machine instead of a microcontroller,no firmware
programming is required. Fully compliant USB transceivers are integrated into the ASIC forall upstream and downstream ports. The downstream ports support full-speed and low-speed devices byautomatically setting the slew rate according to the speed of the device attached to the ports. Theconfiguration of the BUSPWR pin selects either the bus-powered or the self-powered mode.

Configuring the GANGED input determines the power switching and overcurrent detectionmodes for the downstream ports. If GANGED is high, all PWRON outputs switchtogether and if any OVRCUR is activated, all ports transition to thepower-off state. If GANGED is low, the PWRON outputs andOVRCUR inputs operate on a per-port basis.

The TUSB2046x provides the flexibility of using a 6-MHz or a 48-MHz clock. The logiclevel of the TSTMODE terminal controls the selection of the clock source. When TSTMODE is low, theoutput of the internal APLL circuitry is selected to drive the internal core of the device. WhenTSTMODE is high, the TSTPLL/48MCLK input is selected as the input clock source and the APLLcircuitry is powered down and bypassed. The internal oscillator cell is also powered down whileTSTMODE is high. Low EMI emission is achieved because the TUSB2046x can usee a 6-MHz crystal input.Connect the crystal as shown inFigure 6. An internal PLL thengenerates the 48-MHz clock used to sample data from the upstream port and to synchronize the 12 MHzused for the USB clock. If low-power suspend and resume are desired, a passive crystal or resonatormust be used. However, a 6-MHz oscillator may be used by connecting the output to the XTAL1 pin andleaving the XTAL2 pin open. The oscillator TTL output must not exceed 3.6 V.

For 48-MHz operation, the clock cannot be generated with a crystal using the XTAL2 outputbecause the internal oscillator cell supports only the fundamental frequency. Other useful featuresof the TUSB2046x include a package with a 0.8-mm pin pitch for easy PCB routing and assembly,push-pull outputs for the PWRON pins eliminate the need for pullup resistorsrequired by traditional open-collector I/Os, and OVRCUR pins have noisefiltering for increased immunity to voltage spikes.

Carrier options

You can choose different carrier options based on the quantity of parts, including full reel, custom reel, cut tape, tube or tray.

custom reel is a continuous length of cut tape from one reel to maintain lot- and date-code traceability, built to the exact quantity requested. Following industry standards, a brass shim connects an 18-inch leader and trailer on both sides of the cut tape for direct feeding into automated assembly machines. TI includes a reeling fee for custom reel orders.

Cut tape is a length of tape cut from a reel. TI may fulfill orders using multiple strips of cut tapes or boxes to satisfy the quantity requested.

TI often ships  tube or tray  devices inside a box or in the tube or tray, depending on inventory availability. We pack all tapes, tubes or sample boxes according to internal electrostatic discharge and moisture-sensitivity-level protection requirements.
