3U, CompactPCI   5-Port USB 2.0 Host Controller

The CB2-PIPE is a 5-port USB2.0 host controller. The 3U CompactPCI® board complies with the Universal Serial Bus Specification Revision 2.0 and Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) Specification for full-/low-speed signalling and the Intel Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) Specification for high-speed data transfers. All downstream facing ports can handle high-speed (480Mbps), full-speed (12Mbps), and low-speed (1.5Mbps) transaction. All USB power lines are protected against over-current and short circuit conditions. Four of five USB ports are accessible from the front panel. The fifth USB connector is situated on-board for system internal usage (e.g. USB stick or USB cable attached device).
Any popular operating system provides suitable drivers for the CB2-PIPE. In addition, any recent BIOS allows to boot from an USB device via OHCI or high speed EHCI data transfer modes.
