VIA has long recognized the potential of USB as an extremely efficient and universal means of data transfer, designing USB 1.1 support into our award-winning core logic chipsets even before the proliferation of USB-enabled PC peripherals. With the introduction of USB 2.0 and our innovative VIA Vectro VT6202 4-port host controller, VIA has become one of the first silicon provides to satisfy requirements for higher bandwidth peripheral devices.
VIA has driven the industry transition to the enhanced USB 2.0 standard by developing and supplying both integrated and discrete solutions for PCs and peripheral devices. The VIA Vectro line of USB 2.0 Controllers offers both 4-port host controllers and peripheral controllers, and all VIA USB 2.0 products offer the highest performance, supporting data transfer rates of up to 480Mbps.
VIA has actively pursued power efficiency across its entire silicon portfolio and has extended this to the complete line of VIA Vectro USB 2.0 controllers, integrating advanced power management features into a low power package. VIA is proud to have been awarded the world’s first Low Power certification by the USB Implementers Forum for the VIA Vectro VT6205 USB 2.0 to 9-in-1 Flash Card Reader Controller, which features minimal power consumption in portable peripheral devices where energy efficiency is crucial.
