USB-C Active Extension Cable

USB 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbps, DisplayPort™ 1.4, and 60W PD

FireNEX™-uLINK-10GEX provides the world’s first USB-C to USB-C female active extension solution for up to 4 meters (13.1 ft.). Finding a right USB-C extension cable that is long enough while keeping good signal integrity for 10Gbps data rate is challenging, since most of USB-C extension cables are passive and short. FireNEX™-uLINK-10GEX provides user a brand new experience with USB-C extension: users can connect with their own USB-C cable or tethered USB-C device to form a maximum 6 meters connection without sacrificing the signal integrity.

FireNEX™-uLINK-10GEX supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbps data rate while maintaining the full backward compatibility with USB 3.0/2.0/1.1. It also supports Display 1.4a in display alt mode which allows users to extend a USB-C dock station connected with two 4K display monitors working at the same time. It works with USB PD 3.0, enabling charging from host to device or device to host up to 60W at 20V/3A power profile.
