it is a standard NEC/Renesas Electronics USB3.0 20200A chip. and no name manufacturer.

 

I found using

GenericUSBXHCI.kext

work also.

 

also work. just add this in Extra if you are using Chameleon to boot.

 

no patch needed.

after changed to Yosemite, the GenericUSBXHCI.kext does not work properly. Found using Viktor Vos modification:-

 

1. sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

2. download source
3. download xcode, signing in with apple developer account and requesting certificates
4. removing _onThunderbolt functions from source as xcode 6 raised like 8 errors on it.
5. signing with my mac developer account and then build/compile.
6. after installing the resulted .kext with kextwizard i rebuild the mkext with:
7. sudo kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
8. reboot & working for me.

 

the kext:
