Just thought I would pass along this info:

USB 2.0 Finally Here - posted March 1, 2:23 PM EST by Brent

NEC, chip developer for all of Microsofts USB host controller chips, has announced today their USB 2.0 Host Controller chipset has gone into production!



Beginning in March, NEC will produce 100K units of the device per month, with plans to increase that number to 600K per month by July. NEC’s USB 2.0 host controller is available at $8.5 for 10K units and above. Pricing and availability is subject to change.

NEC’s host controller offers up to 40 times the bandwidth of existing USB 1.1 devices, enabling lightning-fast downloads of digital data such as video and sound. A huge number of applications are envisaged for products powered by NEC’s host controller, and customers for the device include makers of PC motherboards, PC cards, PCI add-in cards and servers.


Check out the entire article right -Here-. What does that mean to us? Well many broadband ISP's lately have been using USB Ethernet Adapters instead of Computer Add-On NIC's. They do this for many reasons, one is ease of setup, they don't have to pop the computer case and install a hardware device the novice out there can now install their own adapters making installation easier. Another good reason is an IRQ is not needed for more USB devices, they all share one IRQ which is the host controller IRQ. But there have been some drawbacks to USB, we have had many debates in our forums over which one is better, NIC or USB Adabpter, almost always the NIC is a better choice for Ethernet at this time. Connectivitiy and Bandwith issues are associated with the old USB 1.1 standard. But now maybe with USB 2.0 Bandwith is no longer a concern, USB 2.0 operates at 480Mbps which is 60MB/sec (megabytes per second) The only issue I worry about now is the connectivity problem, i guess we will just have to wait and see how USB 2.0 goes, but if broadband ISP's have anything to do with it you will start to see USB 2.0 adapters and support for broadband ethernet connections. Click right -Here- for more details on USB 2.0
