USB device server unveiled

Silex Technology today announced the SX-2000WG+ USB device server (site not updated, similar product shown at right) with isochronous data transfer support. The SX-2000WG+ allows multiple Mac and PC users to easily share streaming video and audio USB devices like webcams or speakers over an 802.11b/g wireless network or an Ethernet wired network. The device also supports virtually all other types of USB devices, according to Silex, and uses the SX Virtual Link software to provide transparent network access to USB devices. Priced at $150, the SX-2000WG+ is slated for shipment this month.

SX Virtual Link emulates a direct USB port on Windows or Mac systems, transferring packets out over the network to the SX-2000WG+. The software is compatible with virtually all USB device drivers and software applications, while the SX-2000WG+ supports 802.11b/g wireless network connectivity as well as 10/100Mbps autosensing Ethernet and USB 2.0 devices.
