At the SuperSpeed USB Developers Conference in Taipei, the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) announced the certification of 75 SuperSpeed USB products from industry-leading companies that are already available to consumers worldwide. Additionally, the organization said that USB 3.0 products in new device classes, from display to hubs, are emerging.

“SuperSpeed USB momentum continues to explode, with new products rapidly entering the market, furthering the expansion of the SuperSpeed USB ecosystem. Providing our members the opportunity to gather information and insights is a key function of our SuperSpeed USB Developers Conferences. I am pleased to be in Taipei this week to share the benefits of SuperSpeed USB with the industry at large,” said Jeff Ravencraft, president and chairman of USB-IF.

75 USB 3.0 products certified by USB IF include mainboards, notebooks, storage devices and so on.

SuperSpeed USB enables new use cases and enhances existing devices due to the incredible transfer speeds that the technology is capable of achieving. The speed supplied by USB 3.0 – up to 4.8Gb/s without overdraws of the protocol – allows numerous technological advancements and greatly speed up transfer speed between PCs and various external storage devices.

“SuperSpeed USB is tracking with IDC’s forecast from last year for its adoption. Driven by the need for more and faster data storage capabilities in PCs, we continue to forecast that SuperSpeed USB will ship in 45 percent of mobile PCs in 2012,” said Shane Rau, director of IDC’s computing and storage semiconductors research.
