The VUB300 provides a simple high-speed bridge between USB2.0 host and SD/SDIO devices. Designers who would like to add an SD/SDIO compliant host port to their systems via USB will find this device to be cost-effective and very easy to use.
A unique feature of the device is its ability to allow the original SDIO client device drivers to be used via a USB port on the host system greatly simplifying the design process and allowing virtually any client device to be used in existing system with no software changes. This flexibility is a key user benefit as for example new WiFi chipsets are regularly being introduced to the market.
The VUB300 is fully compliant with both USB2.0 and SD/SDIO Specification Version 2.0.
Packaged in a 6 x 6mm 36 pin QFN, the VUB300 is available immediately from Elan Digital Systems or authorized resellers.
A hardware Demonstration Kit for the VUB300 is also available, allowing fast and simple evaluation of the devices’ capabilities.
