1. Project Information:
Based on the VL812 USB3.0 Hub, a USB3.0 input, 4-way USB3.0 output, single-supply 5V power supply, the internal integration of 5V to 3.3V, 5V to 1.2V circuit. Self-firmware, soldered and ready to use. Use TYPE-B input interface, easy to weld alignment, measured maximum speed of 461MB/s.

3. circuit analysis
Control chip circuit
Edit the VL812 chip symbols to distinguish three parts: power supply pin, Hub function pin, and special function pin. Some pull-up and pull-down resistors as well as the LC filtering of the LX pin are not mentioned in the chip datasheet, so it is necessary to refer to the official chip design cases for design.
Port indicator light
According to the datasheet instructions, when a device is inserted, the corresponding insertion pin outputs a high level, which corresponds to the addition of an indicator light and a current limiting resistor as an insertion indication. In order to increase the display effect, the indicator here uses RGB3 three-color gradient, internal self RC, without external control.

VL812 is a low-level reset, here use 10K resistor with 100nf capacitor for power-on reset to meet the timing requirements. Use 4.7K and 10K to form a voltage divider circuit to divide the 5V voltage to about 3.4V, note that you can't directly input 5V to the pin, it may damage the chip.

4. Oscillator Circuit
The use of 25M passive crystal to provide a stable clock signal for the main control chip, matching capacitance needs to be based on the purchase of crystal load capacitance selection, you can also consider the use of active crystal to further enhance the stability.
5. current-limiting protection
Considering that some users use notebooks for use, notebook 3.0 interface general output current in 1A or so, here using SY6280 current-limiting protection chip will be the input current now in 1A, to prevent the emergence of burn notebook interface, but if it is the four USB output interfaces are connected to the USB3.0, there may be a lack of power supply, then you need to take into account the actual computer situation is better! Current limiting set resistor R16 for greater current. EN pin direct input can be, high level normal operation, here 0 ohm resistor for the test resistor.

6. Input port circuit
USB3.0 protocol and 2.0 protocol is not the same, USB3.0 interface more than one set of differential data input signals, commonly used TYPE-C and TYPE-B interfaces to match these two protocols on the docking interface to make certain changes. Among them, the TYPE-C interface only 24Pin to have differential data lines, can not be distinguished simply by color, we must pay attention when buying!!!!

TYPE-B interface in the 2.0 protocol and 3.0 protocol change is very obvious, generally can not buy the wrong, while soldering and alignment is relatively more convenient. This design uses USB3.0 TYPEB interface.

In the input interface circuit, the corresponding pin for the lead, in order to better anti-interference effect, generally in the USB3.0 send differential data lines in series with 100nf capacitors for filtering, at the same time, to prevent electrostatic damage to the chip and inserted into the device, in the input part of the addition of TVS tubes for protection.

The use of TYPE-A female chassis to expand the output, it should be noted that the TYPE-A interface also has a USB2.0 protocol and USB3.0 protocol points, we need to pay attention to the device selection, it is best to judge according to the corresponding device manuals, the TYPE-A female chassis 2.0 interface is generally 4 pins, 3.0 interface is generally 9 pins!

After selecting the corresponding devices according to demand, the same plus filter capacitors and TVS tubes for protection, the chip has four outputs, you can first draw all the way, followed by copying the remaining three can be.
