|How can I extend legacy USB 2.0 or 1.1 devices with this cable?
To answer this question, first let’s review the differences in USB 3.0 and 2.0 at the physical layer.USB 2.0 devices use the 4 pins that you can easily see when you look inside a male A-type connector. USB 3.0 devices however do not use these pins, instead they use their own dedicated USB 3.0 pins that are deep in the back of USB 3 connectors. The designers of USB 3.0 added these new pins in the back to allow backward compatibility so both USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices could be plugged into the same connector.The CUSB3-AP* cables actively extend the signals on the USB 3.0 pins using fiber optic cables, therefore USB 2 or 1.1 devices that are using the legacy pins cannot be extended.
However, Hall Research offers the USB23H-4 which is a unique hub that converts USB 1.1, 2.0 data to USB 3.0. When used at the remote (device) end of the Javelin” cable, users will be able to plug in a combination of USB 3 and 2.0/1/1 devices. Please contact our sales team for more information.
