Andy McCaskey spoke with Bill of Newnex. The Newnex company creates quality USB, Ethernet, FireWire and Optical Audio cables. They make both USB 2.0 and now USB 3.0. USB 3.0 is the technology of the future and it is beginning to appear in various devices. USB 3.0 is 10x faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 has eight wires running through it compared to the USB 2.0′s four. With a USB 3.0 cable data can move in both directions at the same time. Moving large amount of data becomes quick and easy.
Located in Silicon Valley, Newnex is a leading innovator in the area of cable technology. They help create the standards for both USB 2.0 and 3.0. They will even create custom cables if you need some. Normally USB 3.0 cables can only run up to 3.0 meters (10 feet). Newnex makes a repeater, the FireNex-uLink-D which allows the cable to run up to 16 meters (52.5 feet) over 4x its normal distance. The Newnex repeater is a plug and play device and is small and compact. Need a repeater for your optical or Cat5 cable they have those also.
