A first look at the role of the protocol layer in USB 3.0.
A look at the USB 3.0 functional layer, an application layer and system software on the host side, and a logical function and device on the device side.
A look at the role of four types of transaction in the USB 3.0 protocol layer: bulk, control, interrupt and isochronous.
