Icron Technologies Launches Network Compliant Embedded USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series Extension Platform

Next generation embedded USB 2.0 extender modules featuring ExtremeUSB® and support for SwitchableUSB™ now available

Burnaby, British Columbia – February 24, 2014Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, today announced its newest embedded extension platform, the USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series, is commercially available for OEM developers.

The new embedded series offers developers a choice of two core models: the RG2300 and RG2310. The RG2300 builds upon Icron’s previous generations of reliable embedded USB 2.0 extension daughter board modules with pin-to-pin compatibility to Icron’s earlier RG2100 Core Series, while the RG2310 provides enhanced capabilities including USB 2.0 transmission over Local Area Network (LAN), SwitchableUSBTM compatibility, device filtering options, and optimized performance for read-write devices such as flash drives.

“We are very pleased to make our USB 2.0 RG2300 Core Series available today,” said Glenn Antonelli, Icron’s Vice President of Marketing.” OEM developers with requirements to extend USB 2.0 connections at 480Mbps now have more flexibility when integrating with their own products. New capabilities include switching USB signals in conjunction with video and device filtering options such as blocking flash drives to reduce potential security concerns.”

Both the RG2300 and RG2310 core modules are delivered in a compact, cost-effective SO-DIMM form factor, which can be extended over copper, LAN, multimode fiber or singlemode fiber, and 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®
