Windows device driver information for Belkin USB 2.0 High Speed Host Controller

The Belkin USB 2.0 High Speed Host Controller is created and manufactured by Belkin. It is a register level of interface which permits a host controller for USB or FireWire to interact with the operating system of a personal computer. On the expansion card or motherboard controller, this includes a lot of custom logic, with digital logic engines in FPGAs plus analog circuitry organizing the high speed differential signals. On the program side, it requires a device driver known as a Host Controller driver or HCD. When it is utilized to a FireWire card, OHCI will signify that the card backs up a standard interface to the personal computer and can be utilized by the OHCI FireWire drivers that arrive together with all the modern operating systems. Because the card contains a standard OHCI interface, the OS does not require to know in advance precisely who creates the card and how it functions, it can securely assume that the card recognizes the set of well-defines instructions that are defined in the standard protocol.

The Belkin USB 2.0 High Speed Host Controller which is a high speed controller standard which is openly specified. The USB-IF persevered on this for USB 2.0 instead of having a diverse standard for PCI-based USB interfaces, which would have amplified complexity and thus costs. Intel hosted the EHCI conformance testing, which helped to avoid discrepancy from the standard. EHCI only gives high speed USB functionalities. It depends on a companion controller, either OHCI or UHCI, to handle complete and low speed devices. Motherboards and PCI Cards that give high speed ports thus contain two controllers; the first one is handling high speed devices and the other one handling low and full speed devices. It is not rare to locate UHCI, OHCI and EHCI all co-existing within a standard PC computer, with a UHCI driver giving low and full speed functionalities on the motherboard.
