    Atom E38XX - USB mass storage device issue

    Ananth.PN Community Member

      Hello All,


      We are using Atom E38XX on one of our product, we need USB mass storage device / Pen drive should work with 3 to 4 mtr cable length. ( we need at least one or two port)

      As of now its working fine on only one port (USB_DP3 & USB_DN3), remaining (3+2) ports are not working beyond 1 mtr cable. Low speed devices are working fine on all ports with 5 mtr cable.

      We have taken care of PCB trace length & its diff pair matching, Common mode, ESD, Shielded cables... . We have added USB2 Data Switch (TS3USB221A-Q1) on two USB path (one port where USB mass storage is working with 5 mtr also has this USB2 data sheet)


      Kindly request you all to provide your valuable suggestions / Feedback


      Thanks in-advance.

              Dear Carlos,


              Thank you for your speedy response,


              Yes, its our own product designed by us.


              We have EDC account  as well & we have followed PDG USB guidelines during our product design.

              Still we are facing this USB Mass storage device detection issue with USB cable beyond 1mtr,  except one port (USB_DP3 & USB_DN3 with USB2 Data Switch TS3USB221A-Q1 ).


              Best Rgds
