|Hey Everyone, |
I recently did a little research about what each of the pins in various data connectors do. What I found out is that (Link) when a USB 2.0 device is connected to a USB 3.0 port, it only uses the D+/D-, whereas when a USB 3.0 device is connected to a USB 3.0 port, it completely ignores the USB 2.0 data terminals and relies solely on TX+/TX- and RX+/RX-.
My question is, do USB 3.0 hubs switch the 2.0 data onto the 3.0 terminals? Or is it that when 1 USB 2.0 device is hooked up it forces all devices to use the 2.0 data terminals, thus severely hurting bandwidth?
