The high-speed USB bridges offer up to 40Mbytes/s data rates and multi-channel interfacing. The benefit of a multi-channel bridge is that the system BOM is reduced by removing the need for a USB hub chip. Additionally, each channel of the device appears to the host PC as a separate device. This enables each channel to be independently configured for different modes such as UART, MPSSE, or FIFO. Also, with different parameters such as 4 UARTS all operating with different baud rates.
