G201 - Quad USB 3.0 Interface Board (Product Discontinued)

The G201 is a CompactPCI Serial peripheral board offering four USB 3.0 host interfaces with a data rate of up to 5 Gbit/s per direction per port (2.28 Gbit/s measured). It can be used in combination with a CompactPCI Serial or CompactPCI PlusIO CPU boardin a CompactPCI Serial or hybrid system. It is especially suited for connection of external data storage media or devices with high data transfer rate requirements, e.g. high-speed video cameras.

The 4HP single Eurocard provides four USB 3.0 Standard-A connectors at the front panel.The interfaces are controlled by an xHCI controller which is connected to the backplane via a PCI Express x1 link.

The G201 is screened for extended operating temperature and prepared for conformal coating for use in harsh and mobile environments.
