TUSB8041: SSTX/SSRX connection and AC coupling capacitors location in specific USB topology

Part Number: TUSB8041


I have the following topology.

1. Can you confirm that SSTX/SSRX connection between ICs and connectors, numbered from 1 to 5, are OK?

2. I recall that AC coupling capacitors should be placed near the connectors - for both upstream and downstream (numbered 1 and 5). Is that correct?

I've marked the location of the coupling capacitors by PINK oval.

However, I'm not sure where to place the coupling capacitors in other connections, numbered from 1 to 5. Can you please tell where those should be placed?

What about placing also on SSRX lanes? I know there was an ECN which defines this as an option.
