The USB 2.0 RG2310A Core Module continues the tradition of being the most robust and reliable embedded USB 2.0 extender available on the market. Available in an easy-to-integrate pluggable SO-DIMM form factor, the RG2310A Core module supports direct USB 2.0 extension connectivity of up to 100m over CAT 5e (or better) and up to 10km over fiber.  It is optimized for mass stora11ge throughput speeds and boasts market leading USB device and host compatibility.

The RG2310A Core module offers additional capabilities over the RG2300A by supporting USB 2.0 extension across a Local Area Network (LAN) and boasting new features such as custom MAC addressing, Local and Remote extender pairing control via the SwitchableUSB™ protocol, one-to-many pairings with Simultaneous User Interaction, Vendor Locking for brand continuity, custom OEM Hot Keys translation, and device class filtering options for blocking connections to certain USB device types (e.g. flash drives).

To assist developers with their OEM projects, the USB 2.0 RG2310A Core Developer Kit provides a rapid means to evaluate the RG2310A Core module in your application and to prototype custom solutions. If your embedded USB extension project doesn’t require the advanced functionality of the RG2310A Core module, please consider the RG2300A Core.
