Selecting a Port as Fixed Port in HX2VL – KBA220371

Version: **

 

Question:

Is there any technical trade-off in selecting a port as fixed versus removable in HX2VL?

 

Answer:

There is no technical trade-off in selecting a port as fixed vs removable in HX2VL. The only reason to select a port as nonremovable or fixed is to let the USB compliance tool to skip some physical disconnect/connect events which need to be done manually for removable ports. Since a device which is connected permanently to a downstream port cannot be connected/disconnected, that port will be specified as fixed port.
