Cypress and EverPro Extend USB 3.0 Performance Up to 100 Meters

EverPro Technologies Ltd., a leader in USB 3.0 transmission solutions, and Cypress Semiconductor Corp., today announced the completion of successful interoperability testing between both Cypress's EZ-USB FX3 USB 3.0 peripheral controller and EZ-USB CX3 camera controller and EverPro's U3C A0A0-100 USB 3.0 active optical cable (AOC). EverPro is demonstrating the U3C A0A0-100 solution at the 9th China International Machine Vision Exhibition here in Shenzhen from June 18 to June 20, 2014.

USB 3.0 is gaining popularity in machine vision and industrial cameras thanks to its 5 Gbps bandwidth that enables high-resolution, high-frame-rate imaging in real time without the need for compression, which degrades image quality. However, USB 3.0 currently has a maximum cable length of 3 meters that has limited its adoption. EverPro's USB 3.0 transmission solution with active optical cable technology overcomes this limitation and extends full USB 3.0 performance up to 100 meters. This cable length extension allows Cypress USB 3.0 solutions to be easily and cost effectively deployed across a wider range of machine vision and industrial applications, removing cable length limitations in camera placement and installation.
