Product Description 

The PI7C9X440SL PCI Express to USB 2.0 Host Controller is designed to meet the latest low-power, lead (Pb)-free and green system requirements. The PI7C9X440SL is a cost-effective solution that can be implemented in systems such as volume servers, storages, embedded systems, medical, industrial, automation, network, IP TV, peripherals, PC add-in cards and other footprint sensitive platforms requiring multiple USB host connections. The PI7C9X440SL provides one x1 upstream PCIe port and up to 4 USB 2.0 host controller ports.

The PI7C9X440SL provides users the flexibility to expand system connectivity from a wide range of I/O Bridges such as IOH, PCH, embedded MCU, SoC and other Application Specific ICs.
