The U3-EC34G202 is designed with Renesas’ third generation Universal Serial Bus 3.0 host controller (uPD720202), which comply with Universal Serial Bus 3.0 Specification, and Intel’s eXtensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI).
This device reduces power consumption and offers an ExpressCardTM form factor making it ideal for end users who wish to add the USB3.0 interface to mobile computing devices such as laptops and notebook computers.
When connected to USB 3.0-compliant peripherals, the U3-EC34G202 can transfer information at clock speeds of up to 5Gbps.
The U3-EC34G202 and USB 3.0 standard are fully compliant and backward compatible with the previous USB2.0 standard. The new USB 3.0 standard supports data transfer speeds of up to ten times faster than those of the previous-generation USB2.0 standard, enabling quick and efficient transfers of large amounts of information.
