SIIG Scores SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Certification
(Fremont, California; January 5, 2010) SIIG, the market leader in I/O connectivity products (including Serial ATA and Ultra ATA Controllers, FireWire®, USB, and legacy I/O adapters), earned recognition as one of the world’s first manufacturers to achieve the SuperSpeed USB consumer device certification by the USB-IF (Universal Serial Bus-Implementers Forum) for its SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port PCIe add-in card. The USB-IF Compliance and Certification Program was launched in September 2009 and is the gold standard for testing USB products.
The certification of SIIG’s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-Port PCIe add-in card enables SIIG to display the official SuperSpeed USB logo on its product ensuring interoperability with USB enabled devices currently deployed in the market. SuperSpeed USB delivers a backward-compatible interconnect that delivers improved data transfer rates up to 10x faster than Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) as well as offering optimized power management.
“We are excited to announce USB-IF certification for our SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-port PCIe add-in card, and having it now delivered to market”, said Mike Woodmansee, Director of Sales and Marketing at SIIG. “We are thankful for all the hard work – internally and with staff at the USB-IF – in making this possible”.
