Icron Technologies Corp. has announced the newest version of its ExtremeUSB module.

The Burnaby, BC-based company said its ExtremeUSB 2.0 Core 2100 Module daughter boards will enable customers to locate USB 2.0 devices, including keyboards, mice, web cameras, DVD players, printers, scanners and MP3 players, remotely from a PC host. The product is geared toward USB 2.0 connectivity for industrial automation/control, KVM extension and enterprise remote desktops, digital signage, and home network integration.

“The Core 2100 Modules represent a major milestone in the evolution of Icron’s ExtremeUSB solutions. From simple Cat5 and Fibre optic extension solutions to highly customized embedded applications, the Core 2100 modules are flexible enough to meet the individual needs of our customers,” Bill De Vries, product marketing manager at Icron Technologies, said in a release. “Along with adding features and performance, we have reduced board area requirements by over 66 per cent and reduced the total solution BOM by half as compared to our previous generation modules.”
