Icron – USB & video extension solutions

USB & HD Video Extension Solutions

Icron is a Maxim Integrated brand, as well as the global leader in USB 1.1, USB 2.0, USB 3.0/3.1 and HD video extension solutions. USB’s five meter distance limitation may cause installation issues for applications where the host computer needs to be located away from the user, E.g.
o secured locations to prevent tampering
o factory floors where environmental conditions may be unsafe
o medical imaging applications with exposure risks or privacy concerns

To overcome this distance limitation, Icron developed a series of patented technologies called ExtremeUSB®.
