Introducing the new FireNEX™-uLINK-10G Active Extension Cables
Support USB 10Gbps and More
USB bandwidth has leaped forward to 10Gbps era nowadays. External hard drives with 10Gbps transfer rate are becoming mainstream. Many of the new motherboards come with USB-A and USB-C ports which support 10Gbps data rate and above. Some industrial USB devices, for example, Nikon Digital Sight 10 camera, has also raised the data transfer speed to USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps. 

In respond to the 10Gbps USB data rate demand in long range connections, Newnex announced the FireNEX™-uLINK-10G C to C active cables in 2021. This year, Newnex is expanding the 10Gbps active cable series to two new configurations, FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-EX and FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-AC.
FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-EX provides the world’s first USB-C to USB-C female active extension solution for up to 4 meters (13.1 ft.). Finding a right USB-C extension cable that is long enough while keeping good signal integrity for 10Gbps data rate is challenging, since most of USB-C extension cables are passive and short. FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-EX provides users a brand new experience with USB-C extension: users can connect with their own USB-C cable or tethered USB-C device to form a maximum 6 meters connection without sacrificing the signal integrity.

FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-EX supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps data rate while maintaining the full backward compatibility with USB 3.0/2.0/1.1. It also supports Display 1.4a in display alt mode which allows users to extend a USB-C dock station connected with two 4K display monitors working at the same time. It works with USB PD 3.0, enabling charging from host to device or device to host up to 30W at 20V/1.5A power profile.
The new FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-AC is designed for users who still use USB-A host port for 10Gbps applications. Even though USB-C port has grown its popularity, we still see the USB-A port is widely available and frequently used on the desktop and industrial computers with data rate upgraded to 10Gbps.

FireNEX™-uLINK-10G-AC offers the USB A to C configuration that supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 10Gbps data rate up to 8m (26.2 ft.), while being backward compatible to USB 3.0/2.0/1.1. It requires no external power input to drive the repeater unit.
All the three FireNEX™-uLINK-10G configurations are available to purchase right now, please visit for more information.
