My name is Philip,
I am working on a custom board for use with a VERDEX motherboard. Through reading the wiki and looking over the schematics for VERDEX console and breakout boards, I noticed that the Breakout VX board has a MAX823, and Y0_CTS and Y0_RTS are used (according to the UART wiki) for USB device insertion detection.
Also while looking over the schematics for Console VX I noticed that the MAX823 is not used and the RTS and CTS lines are not used for device detection.
My question is: Is this setup neccessary for use of the USB host port?
Thank you for any information you can send my way.
