    Can a USB 3.0 Host Port be charged?

      We are planning on using a CYUSB332x Hub controller for a new product.  There will be a USB 3.0 Host tablet to connect to devices through this hub.  The tablet will be the Host, but we want the Hub to also charge the tablet.  Typically, a Host device would provide power to the devices, but in our case we want the host to receive power to charge it's own battery.

       

      Can this be done?  If so, how?  What are the requirements?

       

      Thanks for any advice.
