Silex intros SDKs for network sharing of USB devices

updated 11:05 pm EST, Tue November 25, 2008

Silex SDKs

Silex Technology on Tuesday launched a suite of SX Virtual Link SDKs that allow manufacturers to implement USB over IP technology for connecting and sharing devices, such as iPods or printers, across private or business networks. The technology is claimed to be compatible with Windows and Mac platforms, as well as most embedded network devices with USB host ports. Integration of the Virtual Link functionality allows products to work on the network the same way as when using a direct USB connection.

Potential capabilities of the Virtual Link system include connection and disconnection of the USB device, discovery, and receiving static/status information.

The available products include SX Virtual Link SDK for Windows and Macintosh, which allows developers to integrate the functionality into computer applications, and SX Virtual Link SDK for Linux, which is used to implement the technology into network devices. Pricing and availability is available from the company.
