New Technologies and EleganceIB-234-U31a looks great and keeps its promise. Hair lined aluminium, a brand new USB 3.1 host and the LED make for an exeptional looking enclosure with unparalleled transfer rate.Its lightweight and its a looker on any Desk.
The USB 3.1 specification supersedes the USB 3.0 specificationOf vital importance is backwards compatibility between devices, hubs and hosts built to the USB 3.0 specification and the new USB 3.1 specification. All combinations of old and new hosts, hubs and devices operating in any mode must be accurately described with the new nomenclature. At the electrical or physical level, PHYs (circuits) operate in Gen 1 or Gen 2 mode.Gen 1 uses the 5 Gbit/s signaling rate described in the USB 3.0 specification.Gen 2 uses a new 10 Gbit/s signaling rate described in the USB 3.1 specification
RequirementsIB-234-U31a is also working with computer/notebook with USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 interfaces. The full transfer rate of USB 3.1 can only be reached with USB 3.1 connection. You can upgrade your computer with a USB 3.1 PCI-e card (eg. ICY BOX IB-U31-02).
