Burnaby, British Columbia – June 12, 2013 Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, is pleased to announce today that Rose Electronics, a pioneer in developing KVM switch technology, is expanding their CrystalLink USB extender series to include Icron’s ExtremeUSB® 3.0 functionality built on the USB 3.0 SP3022, available now, and the USB 3.0 SP3123 which will be available later this fall.

Both USB 3.0 extension over fiber solutions will be on display at InfoComm13 by Rose (booth #2522) and Icron (booth #5158) in Orlando, Florida, beginning today through to the show’s conclusion on Friday.

The SP3022 is a two-port USB extender system supporting USB 3.0 devices at 5Gbps, up to 100 meters and beyond over multimode OM3 fiber optic cabling. The SP3123 is a three-port USB extender system that in addition to USB 3.0 extension, features USB 2.0 and 1.1 backward compatibility. Both models have locking USB ports and power connectors and are designed to be in compliance with AIA USB3 Vision™ devices. Rose will incorporate these two solutions into their successful CrystalLink USB extension brand.

“The USB 3.0 market has begun its exponential growth and we will soon see USB 3.0 extension becoming as important, if not more,  than what USB 2.0 extension has been over the past few years,” said David Rahvar, General Partner at Rose Electronics. “By leveraging Icron’s ExtremeUSB extension technology for USB 3.0 products, our customers will continue at the forefront of technology; whether they are extending out to storage systems, video systems, or other high bandwidth applications.”

“Once again Rose is demonstrating that they are an innovator in the KVM space by being an early adopter of USB 3.0 over fiber extenders,” stated Glenn Antonelli, Icron’s Vice President of Marketing. “The SP3022 is tailored for vision and post production editing applications that require USB 3.0 only, while the SP3123 with USB 2.0 and 1.1 backward compatibility serves broader applications in the Pro AV,  Industrial Automation, Digital Signage, Aerospace and Medical markets.”

Both the SP3022 and 3123 include the ExtremeUSB® suite of features such as plug and play functionality (no software drivers) and compatibility with all major operating systems including Windows 8.
