THine Launches Paddle Card and Active Plug for USB3.1 Gen2 Active Cable


THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed
serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announces that
THine has developed three paddle cards and three active plugs for USB3.1
Gen2. THine plans to deliver samples of the new products in August, 2018.

While THine already provides redriver product "THCX222R10" for improving
signal integrity of high-speed interface with transmission rate of about
10Gbps, THine has developed three paddle cards for USB3.1 Gen2 active
cable including small board that has "THCX222R10," three types of USB
connector (Standard-A plug, Micro-B plug, and Type-CTM plug),
and other components. These products can easily make
Standard-A/Micro-B/Type-CTM active cables for USB3.1 Gen2,
which provides long-distance transmission solution. The new active plugs
are signal compensators that compensate waveform of signals flowing in
the USB connector connected to the adapter. In the active plug, THine's
redriver "THCX222R10" is mounted on small board, and two USB connectors
(plug/receptacle) and other components are provided at both ends of the
board. These products can easily make active plug that compensates
waveform of USB3.1 Gen2 signals at any connecting point, which provides
long-distance transmission solution and free lay-out. Specifically, USB
Type-CTM is expected to be used as interface between devices
for XR market, such as VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), and
MR (mixed reality) as well as for PC and mobile markets.

The six new products are based on THine's redriver "THCX222R10." Since
peripheral circuits are mounted on board, user can produce active cable
and active plug for USB3.1 Gen2 in a short time. In addition to these
products, THine will continue to expand lineup of redriver products
handling high-speed signal.
