USB Over Fiber

Originally posted on on January 12, 2018

Madison, WI, USA – TechLogix Networx is expanding their USB over fiber optic line card with the introduction of the TL-FO-USB3-02, the first extender set to be backwards and forwards compatible with USB 3.1, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 signals.

“Historically, USB extension technology either supports high-speed and full-speed signals or SuperSpeed signals,” states Cameron Smith, TechLogix CEO. “Products are not compatible with all formats, forcing integrators to pick through peripherals and cobble together solutions. Simply put, TL-FO-USB3-02 streamlines the design and installation process.”

The TL-FO-USB3-02 extends USB 3.1, 2.0 and 1.1 devices simultaneously up to 200m (650 feet) over duplex multimode fiber. Swappable SFP fiber modules allow integration with single mode fiber. The TL-FO-USB3-02 also incorporates ExtremeUSB-C™ technology, which provides plug-and-play operation and compatibility with all major operating systems.

Additionally, an integrated Ethernet channel provides 100Mbps of LAN pass-through from the transmitter to the receiver. For added versatility, the receiver also features four USB type A ports allowing four separate USB devices to be simultaneously connected. Each port receives 1.2A (6W) of power over USB.

TechLogix is debuting the TL-FO-USB3-02 at ISE in Amsterdam, February 6 – 9, on Stand 15-P280.
