    USB Busses


      OK so I've been using a second generation core I3 NUC (DC3217BY) as the brains of a robot and it works great but

      I've run into a bit of a limitation. I have a few high bandwidth sensors Kinect, Laser scanner etc but the second gen nuc

      only has a single USB bus handling all the ports and I can't run all the sensors at full speed/resolution. I was wondering

      if anyone could confirm how many busses the 3rd Gen Haswell based NUC have available?

          Thanks for joining the NUC community.

          I understand you are connecting this NUC for robot project

          I would like to know what exactly you call USB busses. Are you referring to Host controllers? Or how many devices can you hook to this unit through USB port?

          See product specifications here on page 24:

          The board supports seven USB 2.0 ports. The port arrangement is as follows:

          • Three front panel ports (via one dual-port internal header and one front panel

          • One port is reserved for the PCI Express Half-Mini Card

          • One port is reserved for the PCI Express Full-Mini Card
