Rosewill Announces RISE Slim Full Tower Cases

Rosewill announced the RISE line of slim ATX full-tower cases.

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).
