USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1Extenders / Repeaters

The new UBS 3.0 connectivity interface has dramatically improved the connection bandwidth between the hosts and peripherals because of its superior speed at 5 Gbps and power efficiency. However, despite the increase in signal speed, the pace at which USB 3.0 popularity was growing has been limited due to its length limitation. For example, a standard passive USB 3.0 cooper cable can normally only go up to 3 meters.

To break the length barrier for USB 3.0 applications, Newnex has developed the FireNEX™ USB 3.0 Extender/Repeater series that feature either a fiber optic cable or an active copper cable to extend the USB 3.0 5 Gbps SuperSpeed signal up to 1000 feet (300 meters).
