Many applications are challenged by USB’s distance limitation of 5m for USB 2.0 and approximately 3m for USB 3.0, where the USB host on the computer and the device need to be separated.
Icron Technologies has released ExtremeUSB which aims to provide reliably at extended distances.
ExtremeUSB extension incorporates numerous innovative patented technologies working together to provide transparent USB extension across all major operating systems (Windows, OS X and Linux) without the need for additional software drivers.
Whether extending USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 or uncompressed full High Definition video with USB, Icron extenders can provide reliable USB extension over Cat 5e/6/7, Local Area Network or fibre up to 10km. ExtremeUSB has Plug and Play installation and also features transparent USB extension.
