Micro/sys Releases a
StackableUSB® 8 Port Adaptor Board
Montrose, CA. . .
For the first time OEMs can easily and conveniently attach multiple USB devices
directly to their embedded system. The USB3368
8 port USB adaptor board plugs directly into any StackableUSB single board
computer (SBC) providing eight standard type A USB connectors. This design
allows OEMs to operate with a mixture of StackableUSB peripheral boards and
standard USB devices. The breakout board is RoHS compliant, operates from –40°C
to +85°C, and provides standard USB connectivity to StackableUSB SBC.
The USB3368’s USB
interconnect options allow embedded users the needed flexibility to accommodate
their systems various USB’s connector needs. In addition to the StackableUSB
format and the standard type A USB connectors, the
USB3368 can be equipped with the Sealevel molded connector depending
upon the OEMs needs. The USB3368 is so
versatile that it can connect a StackableUSB SBC directly to a PC as a host or
client plus additional I/O devices.
