Icron’s USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series embedded daughter board extender modules will be on display at booth #1-170 from February 25th – 27th in Nürnberg, Germany
Burnaby, British Columbia – February 13, 2014 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, today announced that HY-LINE Computer Components a specialized distributor and representative of high-tech products, will be showing Icron’s newest USB 2.0 embedded core extender modules at the embedded world exhibition at booth 1-170 in Hall 1 from February 25th – 27th in Nürnberg, Germany.
The USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series builds upon Icron’s previous generations of reliable embedded USB 2.0 extension daughter board modules by maintaining the benefits of ExtremeUSB® extension technology enhanced by newly added capabilities such as data transmission over Local Area Network (LAN), SwitchableUSBTM compatibility, Device Class Filtering options, and faster performance with read-write devices such as flash drives. To enable an easy development transition, this next generation integrated USB 2.0 extension solution is delivered in a compact, cost-effective SO-DIMM form factor with pin compatibility to Icron’s earlier RG2100 Core modules. With the flexibility of extending USB 2.0 at 480Mbps over copper, fiber and LAN, OEM developers enjoy full control in how USB extension integrates with their products. The RG2300 Core Series modules support USB 2.0 extension up to 100 meters over Cat X, up to 500 meters over multi-mode fiber, and up to 10 kilometers when using single-mode fiber.
“Icron’s previous generation of core modules for embedded USB 2.0 extension served our OEM customers very well,” said Guido Brüning, President at HY-LINE. “Now, the next generation ExtremeUSB RG2300 Core Series goes above and beyond with amazing new features such as extension over LAN, device filtering and SwitchableUSB which opens several new opportunities for USB integration to convert a video matrix switch into a KVM network switch.”
“HY-LINE is well known for their expertise in embedded computing solutions,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “It is no surprise to see HY-LINE as the first distributor to showcase our new RG2300 Core Series considering their leadership position combined with Icron’s certified integration partner status for USB extension.”
As with all Icron extenders, the RG2300 Core Series modules include the ExtremeUSB suite of features:
- Transparent USB extension
- True plug and play; no software drivers required
- Works with all major operating systems: Windows®, Mac OS X®, and Linux®
The RG2300 Core Series will be commercially available beginning February 24th. To learn more, please contact HY-LINE at [email protected].
