Accell Claims World’s Longest SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Cable at 20 feet
Accell, a provider of premium audio/video interconnects and computer cables, today announced it is exhibiting the innovative line of cables supporting the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard at the 2010 International CES. Accell’s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cables support long cable runs of up to 20 feet (6m) and can be viewed at the 2010 International CES on Jan. 7-10, 2009, at the CES Expo South Hall 1, booth 20525.
SuperSpeed USB brings significant performance enhancements to the current Hi-Speed USB standard. Featuring a 5 Gbps signaling rate, it offers a 10x performance increase over Hi-Speed USB as well as improved power efficiency. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with the vast amount of USB enabled devices currently deployed in the market.
“Producing SuperSpeed USB cables without length limitations has been a great challenge in the past,” said Tenny Sin, vice president of sales and marketing, Accell. “With our new line of SuperSpeed USB cables, Accell has once again proven we’re focused on delivering innovative, high quality products, which is something CES attendees definitely appreciate seeing each year.”
Accell’s SuperSpeed USB cables are available in 1m, 2m, 3m, 4m, 5m and 6m lengths with prices starting at $19.99 MSRP. The 4m, 5m and 6m lengths feature active cable technology that enables the data to travel at SuperSpeed signaling rates over long distances. The active cables require no external power and are able to obtain these long runs over compact 32-gauge wire.
