USB253x, USB3x13, USB46x4, USB553x
Microchip's family of versatile, cost-effective, and power-efficient USB 2.0 and USB3.0 hub families provide a USB port expansion solution for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 applications that demand ultra-low power and a small footprint without compromising on performance. In addition, Microchip's hub products include Hi-Speed Inter-Chip (HSIC) based USB 2.0 hub controller, and controllers supporting the USB-IF Battery Charging 1.2 specification designed specifically for portable computing products.
A tablet computer, or simply tablet, is a mobile computer with display, circuitry and battery in a single unit. Tablets are equipped with sensors, including cameras, microphone, motion sensors and touchscreen, with finger or stylus gestures replacing computer mouse and keyboard.
Tablets may include physical buttons, e.g., to control basic features such as speaker volume and power and ports for network communications and to charge the battery. An on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboard is usually used for typing.
Tablets are typically larger than smart phones or personal digital assistants at 7 inches (18 cm) or larger, measured diagonally.
