Many laptops and desktops come equipped with USB 3.0/3.1 ports. These new ports allow for faster speeds when used with USB 3.0/3.1 devices. The USB 3.0/3.1 ports are also backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices. Currently, all Total Phase tools are USB 2.0 based devices and work with either a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0/3.1 host controller.

Since USB 3.0/3.1 host controllers are fairly new, it is strongly recommended to update the driver and firmware for the USB 3.0/3.1 host controller to the latest version. This ensures a smooth and reliable experience when using any USB based device (either 2.0 or 3.0/3.1) with the USB 3.0 host controller.

The links provided below point to driver and firmware updaters for the Renesas/NEC uPD70200 USB 3.0/3.1 Host Controller.
