Cambrionix proprietary 4 Lane PCIe Gen2 card (supplied) provides a 20Gbps host interface to the desktop/rack mounted unit.
The PCIe lanes are routed over dual 20Gbps Thunderbolt Type-C cables ensuring low cost and availability of supply.
4 Times faster than any other USB3.0 hub on the market due to our custom internal architecture and 20Gbps upstream connection.
Designed for speed and reliability, not budget.
When used with 16x USB2.0 devices there is no data bottleneck and each USB2.0 device has its full 480Mbps bandwidth available. This equates to an increase in speed of 16x over a traditional USB2.0 hub.
When used with 16x USB3.0 devices the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB can offer a 4x increase in speed over a traditional USB3.0 hub.
The USB3 to PCIe bridge (order code: TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3) is a very high speed data transfer and charging product designed to allow 16 USB2.0 or USB3.0 devices to connect to a Windows, Linux or Mac host computer without the large bandwidth bottleneck experienced when using traditional USB hubs.
The product allows you transfer data between a host computer and multiple USB devices many times quicker than using a traditional USB host computer. In applications such as SQA or Reverse Logistics, this massive increase in data transfer speed equates to shorter process times, reduced costs, and better use of IT infrastructure.
The TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 offers up to 5Gbps data rate to each of the 16 USB devices and transfers this data over 4 Lanes of Gen2 PCIe, with a total available bandwidth of 20Gbps to the host computer.
“The PCIe to USB3.0 bridge has given us 4 times more upstream bandwidth than our old, standard USB3 hubs. This means that we can perform data intensive tasks such as OS restores and uploading firmware images on 16 USB3.0 devices 4 times quicker than before. We can now do more real work in less time.”
With an internal 320W power supply, and each port offering 2.4A (12W), you have the power to fast-charge your USB devices too. The TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 offers universal charging and its device charging profiles can be updated should new charging profiles appear on the market or if we add new features. Updating the firmware is quick (and free of charge) and we supply our FW Updater App for this purpose.
Internally, the product contains a certified, custom design which provides a robust, 20Gbps interface between large numbers of USB devices and the host computer. We utilise a number of programmable components and microcontrollers in order to get the very best from the various internal interfaces within the product which ensures dependable, Super-Speed data transfer for the most demanding 24/7 mission-critical applications in SQA, Reverse Logistics, Aerospace industries and more.
“When compared to standard USB3 Hub products, the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 is 4 times quicker. This saves us a lot of dead-time waiting for new software builds to upload onto our devices.”
The TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 supports our Application Programming Interface (API) which allows you to automate, monitor and control each port programatically. With the API you can monitor current consumption of each individual port, total connection time, charging time, control the 48x front panel LEDs, turn power on/off to individual ports, emulate different charging profiles, read USB VID/PID and much more.
The API is available as a free download and is updated regularly and well documented.
We also supply our Live Viewer App which allows you to monitor and control ports using a graphical user interface.
The API consists of a service module or daemon that is loaded on the host computer. The service module is accessed via JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket. Cambrionix provides sample Python code complete with the necessary JSON library code to be able to make the necessary calls for controlling Cambrionix products that are connected to the host computer.
It is of course possible to access the API from any programming environment that has support for making JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket.
To use the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3, simply install the PCIe Card into your host computer and connect the 2 supplied cables between the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB and the PCIe Card. The cables can be inserted either way around and it doesn’t matter which ports on the PCIe card are connected to the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 so long as both ports on the PCIe card are connected to both Type-C ports on the TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3.
The TS16-RM-PCIE-USB3 is available without an MOQ and volume discounts are available at 50+ units.
