No Bigger than a Matchbox, Black Box 4K Extender

No bigger than a matchbox (or a very small Black Box), this new 4K Extender extends video with resolutions up to 4K UHD (3840x2160) and, in addition to supporting USB HID, also supports transparent USB 1.1 for touchscreen or KVM applications.

With a range of 300 metres (1080p), or 40 metres (4K UHD) over a standard multimode cable, it is designed for use in industrial, healthcare or broadcasting environments.

The compact, lightweight housing of Black Box’s UVX-HDMI-FO-MINI measures 4 x 5.6 x 1.5 cm and can be installed discreetly behind the screen (receiver) or computer (transmitter), ensuring economy of space. At the same time, both the extender units USB interface powered.

How to Confirm the Authenticity of USB-C Cables

How to Confirm the Authenticity of USB-C Cables

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group announces a means to confirm whether a USB-C device or charger is authentic or not-- cryptographic-based authentication able to check product capabilities and certification status.

The process takes place as soon as a wired connection is made, before the transfer of power or data. As such it should both protect against non-compliant chargers and the risks involved with maliciously embedded hardware or software. Such a system can be useful in applications such as phones only allowing charging from certified chargers, or a company setting a PC policy granting access solely to verified USB storage devices.

Extron Adds eBUS Accessories

Extron Electronics introduces two new eBUS system accessories, the EBDB and the PS 1220EB.

The Extron EBDB is an eBUS distribution hub that reduces cable runs by providing a convenient connection point for eBUS wiring infrastructure. The EBDB is designed for larger or more complex control systems that require a more elaborate cabling infrastructure. A front panel status LED indicates when power is present on one of the 10 eBUS distribution ports. All ports are connected in parallel, allowing each port to act as an input or an output for eBUS communication.

The Extron PS 1220EB is a 12 volt, 24 watt, rack mountable eBUS power supply and distribution hub. The PS 1220EB provides additional power for larger or more complex control systems and reduces cable runs by providing a convenient connectivity point for eBUS devices. Parallel and interchangeable eBUS distribution ports allow each port to act as an input or an output port. For the PS 1220EB, each port provides 12 VDC of power to connected eBUS devices.

HPE Adds DRAM/NAND Hybrid to Servers

HPE Adds DRAM/NAND Hybrid to Servers

HPE announces servers with built-in support for Persistent Memory, a hybrid memory/storage technology combining the speed of DRAM with the non-volatility of flash memory for "significant" performance and resiliency gains.

Dubbed NVDIMM (Non-Volatile Dual In-Line Memory Module), the technology pairs 8GB of DRAM with 8GB of NAND flash. As well as persistence and performance, HPE says Persistent Memory ensures no data is lost from the memory module in case of power outage, since the flash backs up all DRAM contents while a Smart Storage Battery (with support for up to 16 NCVDIMMs) provides backup power.
