For the current project I am using MC7455 series and we ran into the USB 3.0 pins incompatiblity issue. So I have to remove the USB3.0 pins manually. I am not sure whether removing these pins have any effect on the download and upload speed.
I read the specification, its mentioned that
This device has been designed to achieve optimal performance and maximum
throughput using USB superspeed mode (USB 3.0). Although the device may
operate with a high speed host, throughput performance will be on an “as is”
basis and needs to be characterized by the OEM.
I looked into another series of sierra MC7304 which doesn’t support USB3.0 . It looks good fit for my project though it supports lesser LTE bands than MC7455.
If the LTE speed of MC7455 is affected by removing USB 3.0 pins, which I assume so. I feel its better to move to MC7304. May I know your view on removal of USB 3.0 pins and effect on LTE speed.
Thanks & Regards,
