This white paper explores the technology for extending USB connections beyond the standard 16-feet limit. It highlights the use of USB extenders, to expand USB reach up to 6.2 miles, revolutionizing the use in various industries by overcoming distance constraints. Key takeaways:

  • USB's Global Impact: USB is a widely used interface with a market value of $26,649 million in 2022, expected to grow to $62,048 million by 2031.

  • Distance Limitation and Solution: USB traditionally has a distance limitation (14.4 feet for USB 1.1/2.0; 9.8 feet for USB 3.0, 3.1, 3.2; 6.5 feet for USB 4.0). USB Extension technology overcomes this, enabling extensions up to 6.2 miles.

  • Extended-Range USB Benefits: USB extenders allow for extended-range USB technology, beneficial for industrial, commercial, and consumer computing applications.

  • Technology and Compatibility: USB Extenders support all major operating systems (Windows®, MacOS®, Linux®) and maintain USB compatibility and performance over extended distances.
