SIIG SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ExpressCard Now USB-IF Certified

(Fremont, California; February 3, 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 ExpressCard/34.  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 ExpressCard/34 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 3.0 delivers a backward-compatible interconnect that delivers improved data transfer rates up to 10x faster than Hi-Speed 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 ExpressCard/34, directly following certification of our SuperSpeed USB 3.0 2-port PCIe add-in card”, said Mike Woodmansee, Director of Sales and Marketing at SIIG.   “We are thankful to all in making it possible to be among the first to market with these important certifications”.
