Dedicated Per-Port Performance Architecture

4x 10Gb/s Transfer Bandwidth


Unlike most USB controllers in today’s marketplace, the RocketU 1244A supports four independent USB Type-A ports, each of which is powered by a dedicated USB 3.2 10Gb/s controller.

This unique Per-Port Performance architecture enables each RocketU 1244A to deliver up to 4000MB/s of transfer bandwidth.

Blazing Fast PCIe 3.0 x8 Host Interface


The blazing fast PCIe 3.0 x8 host interface works in tandem with our Per-Port Performance architecture to ensure each individual USB port can deliver 1000MB/s of transfer bandwidth at all times, even in cases where each port is occupied and under heavy load.


Dedicated USB Controllers Provide Independent Device Paths & Power Delivery


The RocketU 1244A’s four dedicated USB 3.2 controllers enable each port to work independently and deliver up to 7.5W of power for device operation or charging purposes. The innovative PCB layout provides a dedicated USB connection pathway for each port; hosted USB devices can operate at peak performance, without the risk of interference by neighboring USB connections.

Ideal for High-Speed Data Acquisition & Capture Applications

The RocketU 1244A's performance-focused HBA architecture was designed for workflows that demand ease of integration, hot-plug capability, and rapid file transfer. The four independent 10Gb/s USB ports and PCIe 3.0 x8 host interface can easily accommodate a wide range of high-speed data acquisition applications, including imaging and capture solutions, security systems, and media archiving.
