U3H01AR Expressway Hub


U3H01AR Expressway Hub is new-generation USB 3.0 hub integrated with SuperTT technology

Compared with other common USB 3.0 hubs, this product can convert the USB 2.0/1.1/1.0 devices connected on the downstream port to USB 3.0 devices, allowing these USB 2.0/1.1/1.0 devices to share the SuperSpeed upstream bandwidth. Based on SuperTT technology, U3H01AR can provide independent 480Mbps bandwidth on every downstream USB 2.0 port. In addition, using U3H01AR with USB 3.0 Active Optical Cable can extend the transmission distance of USB 2.0/1.1/1.0 devices to more than 100 meters.

U3H01AR Expressway hub provides convenient method to extend available bandwidth for multiple USB 2.0 devices with no other cost.

As USB 3.0 is compatible with USB 2.0 in device drivers, developers do not need to modify the driver and application. This product is transparent for end users.
