8:1 USB Mux Supports USB 2.0 Hi Speed Data Rates
for Extremely Fast Switching From PC


USB-201 is a USB 2.0 High Speed(480Mbps), Full Speed(12Mbps) and Low Speed(1.5Mbps) compliant 8 port USB multiplexer. Connect to USB port for control and transmitting a simple command from your PC, 8 port USB can be arbitrarily switch. It can promote labor-saving for testing process and auto-testing system of USB devices.
* Switching USB 2.0 port is the same as removing and re-mounting USB device. When you switch USB 2.0 port, it is necessary to confirm removing and recognizing the device by your application.

Application examples

  • Operation test of USB devices
  • Switching USB devices


  • Switch 8 Ports
    You can switch 8-channel USB 2.0 port from controller USB 2.0 port by using virtual COM port.
  • Supports USB 2.0 Hi Speed
    USB-201 is designed for USB 2.0 High, Full and Low Speed applications with capability of supporting data rates up to 480Mbps.
  • Simple Current Mesurement Function
    USB-201 can measure current consumption of USB device. (The measurement value is digital value and it's not calibrated.)
  • Simple Command
    You can operate with simple single character command
  • Controllable from embedded Linux devices
    It operates as a device of the standard CDC-ACM class.
    For Linux distributions with embedded CDC-ACM device drivers, you can use them without installing the drivers.
