Thanks.  I will try the test program later.
Meanwhile, here is the beginning of the usba man page

      usba, usb - Solaris USB Architecture (USBA)

USB provides a low-cost means for attaching peripheral dev
ices, including mass-storage devices, keyboards, mice, and
printers, to a system. For complete information on the USB
architecture, visit the USB website at http://www.usb.org.

USBA supports 126 hot-pluggable USB devices per USB bus. The
maximum data transfer rate is 1.5 Mbits (low speed USB 1.x)
or 12 Mbits (full speed USB 1.x) or 480 MBits (high speed
USB 2.0) Mbits per second (Mbps).

USBA adheres to the Universal Serial Bus 2.0 specification
and provides a transport layer abstraction to USB client
