Distributed by MilSource, Techaya unveils MILTECH 300 HoB, what it calls the industry’s first rugged USB 3.1 Smart hub and charging platform in a board-level solution. It allows for connectivity and communication between multiple USB-connected devices in fixed-wing/rotor aircraft, hardened portable enclosures and harsh commercial environments. The small form factor board has five USB 3.1 ports, one gigabit Ethernet port, and a dedicated IO port.
In addition to offering Super Speed compatible USB connectivity, the board can power and charge USB devices with 5 Vdc per port while accepting a wide voltage range of 12 to 28 Vdc and up to 2A downstream power. It supports multiple popular battery charging profiles including DCP, CDP, SDP, and custom profiles via SMBus or OT. An internal Ethernet interface allows the USB host machine to communicate with upstream devices over a standard wired and wireless Ethernet network which extends the flexibility of the hub and attached USB devices.
The MILTECH 300 HoB is conformally coated to stand up against debris and vibration and meets MIL-STD-810F standards when installed in an appropriate enclosure. It measures 73 mm x 38 mm x 11 mm and weighs less than 24.2 grams. For more details, get the datasheet and visit Techaya and MilSource.
