Cypress HX3™ USB 3.0 Hub Controllers offer advanced charging capabilities and are the industry's first to offer eight downstream ports for enhanced connectivity and flexible design. These highly-interoperable Cypress EZ-USB® hub controllers offer a best-in-class feature set with robust interoperability, extensive charging support, and full configurability. HX3 devices are ideal for use in docking stations, monitors, Ultrabook™ devices, digital TVs, set-top boxes, printers, and servers. The versatile HX3 USB 3.0 hub controller offers a Ghost Charging™ feature for charging of devices without a host, and it also supports the USB-IF Battery Charging v1.2 specification and charging of Apple devices.
