Four Port 3.0 Host Controller From Renesas

Renesas is the spin off company from NEC who’s already making waves with their newest announcement of a USB 3.0 host controller which supports four downstream ports. This means the chip will provide more USB 3.0 ports to a motherboard, PCI card or embedded system applications.  In addition the new controller reduces it’s power consumption and increases performance. Renesas claims a 40% increase with this new controller, and I hate to say it, but that is a big jump from previous controllers – so I’m not totally convinced.  So it’ll need to be one of those “guilty until proven innocent” situations.

SuperSpeed USB Duplicator Introduced by Nexcopy

USB hard drives have become increasingly popular over the years due to their versatility, portability, and affordability. They offer users a convenient way to expand storage capacity, back up data, and transport files between devices.

USB duplicator, 3.0 speed

If it is needed to duplicate a set of USB hard drives, how would you do it?

The USB Duplicator from Nexcopy will solve those data loading problems. Using high speed 3.0 technology the USB160PC can data load 1GB of data to all targets in under one minute. This means a 100GB data load will take just over 1.5 hours. If that doesn’t sound fast enough, then you’ve got to better understand how USB works.

USB stands for Universal Serial Bus and the key word there is serial. This means USB does not work in parallel where multiple things happen at the same time, but rather serial. With that in mind, taking this 16 target system into consideration, the duplicator is actually copying 1.6TB of data in about 1.5 hours. Said another way, USB must stream 100GB of data to each socket. So the amount of data is 100GB x 16 sockets or 1.6TB of data. Now doesn’t that sound a bit faster!

Why consider a USB duplicator for USB hard drive duplication?

Portability: USB hard drives are compact and lightweight, making them easy to carry around. This portability is particularly appealing to users who need to access their data on the go or share files between multiple devices.

Plug-and-Play Convenience: USB hard drives typically utilize the plug-and-play functionality, allowing them to be easily connected to computers and other devices without the need for additional power sources or complex setup procedures. This convenience makes them accessible to users of all technical skill levels.

Storage Capacity: USB hard drives are available in a wide range of storage capacities, from a few gigabytes to several terabytes. This flexibility allows users to choose a drive size that meets their specific storage needs, whether it’s for basic file storage or large media libraries.

Compatibility: USB is a widely supported standard across various devices, including computers, laptops, gaming consoles, media players, and smart TVs. As such, USB hard drives can be used with a diverse range of devices, regardless of their operating system or manufacturer.

The USB160PC is the first SuperSpeed USB duplicator we’ve seen in the market.   Nexcopy is reporting that 1GB of data can be copied to all targets in under 1 minute. Just imagine how much time that will save for the promotional guys or the corporate IT guys who need to deploy loads of data on USB.

Over the past several years, the price of USB 3.0 flash drives has experienced a notable decline due to various factors, including advancements in technology, increased competition among manufacturers, and economies of scale.

As technology has advanced, manufacturing processes have become more efficient, leading to lower production costs for USB 3.0 flash drives. Manufacturers have been able to produce flash drives with higher capacities and faster speeds at reduced costs, contributing to overall price drops.

With the proliferation of digital data and the increasing need for portable storage solutions, USB flash drives have become a staple accessory for many consumers. As a result, manufacturers have focused on optimizing production processes and streamlining supply chains to meet growing demand while keeping prices competitive.

Given the proliferation of USB media in the market today it has become more important to have equipment to manage those devices. The Nexcopy company is focused on solid state memory solutions and the USB160PC is one USB duplicator which will save time and money for any corporation or business.
