Icron Systems Inc.


Icron Systems Inc. is pleased to announce that it has supplied a number of market leaders in the PC and USB peripherals industries throughout the US and Canada with evaluation units of Icron’s ExtremeUSB range extending technology. These units are being provided to these companies under Icron’s Early Field Unit program. The purpose of this program is to provide these market leaders with an opportunity to evaluate Icron’s technology as well as to further their business relationships with Icron.

David Dunnison, Vice President of Business Development said, “This is a very important and exciting milestone for Icron. We are now in a position to provide working hardware to our key relationships for their own internal evaluation. These companies can now begin to develop their own market plans as well as to preview our technology to their important customers. Putting our technology into their hands is a critical step to cementing the type of market relationships required to take our technology to market. All of these companies have expressed significant interest in our technology and Icron has been in discussions with these companies for a number of months. We are thrilled to take these discussions to the next level.”

Icron Systems Inc. has invented ExtremeUSB technology, a practical means of extending the range of USB connections from five meters to over 100 meters. Icron has applied for patents covering its inventions and is in the process of integrating this technology into a series of products for PC users.
