MilSource: Techaya’s Rugged USB 3.1 Hub and Charging Platform now in HUB on Board Format
With the industry’s smallest form factor, the MILTECH 300 HoB connects multiple USB devices in space-constrained environments or chassis-based solutions
Los Angeles– April 2, 2018 – MilSource, the exclusive U.S.-based distributor for Techaya’s military-grade and rugged Ethernet solutions today announced industry’s first rugged USB 3.1 Smart hub and charging platform in a board-level solution. It allows for connectivity and communication between multiple USB-connected devices in fixed-wing/rotor aircraft, hardened portable enclosures and harsh commercial environments. The small form factor MILTECH™ 300 HoB has five USB 3.1 ports, one gigabit Ethernet port and a dedicated IO port.
In addition to offering Super Speed compatible USB connectivity, the flexible MILTECH 300 HoB can power and charge USB devices with consistent power of 5 VDC per port while accepting a a wide voltage range of 12-28VDC and up to 2A downstream power. It supports multiple popular battery charging profiles including DCP, CDP, SDP and custom profiles via SMBus or OT. An internal Ethernet interface allows the USB host machine to communicate with upstream devices over a standard wired and wireless Ethernet network which extends the flexibility of the hub and attached USB devices.
“Last year, Techaya introduced the MILTECH 300, a MIL STD USB 3.1 HUB that connects and powers USB
3.1 devices in military applications.” said Ronen Isaac, general manager of MilSource. “The MILTECH 300 HoB now offers an affordable alternative for applications and environments that are either more tightly space-constricted or who have their own chassis-based solution in a hardened enclosure.”
The rugged MILTECH 300 HoB is conformally coated to stand up against debris and vibration and meets MIL-STD-810F standards when installed in an appropriate enclosure. It measures 73mm x 38mm x 11mm and weighs less than 24.2 grams, far more compact than its competitors. It is available immediately.
