August 5, 2011 [New Taipei, Taiwan] SilverStone Technology, one of the
premier companies in computer component design, announces the immediate
worldwide availability of its latest USB 3.0 products, EC01, EC02, and EC03.
EC02 is a compact ExpressCard with USB 3.0 port designed to fit flush with
ExpressCard slot equipped laptop.
EC01 and EC03 in particular, are the first PCI Express cards on the market to
feature the 19pin USB 3.0 header, a connection standard that has become an
increasingly common fixture on motherboards released in 2011. These
products enable users to add USB 3.0 front ports without resorting to routing
cables out of the chassis or replacing existing motherboards.
SilverStone Technology was also the first company to introduce retail
computer chassis equipped with 19pin USB 3.0 connector when it released Milo
ML03 HTPC chassis in December 2010. It is looking to aggressively populate
its product with this connection standard throughout 2011 and beyond.
Current users of popular SilverStone chassis such as RAVEN RV02 and Fortress
FT02 may purchase cable kit (part number G11303260) to upgrade to USB 3.0 ports
with connector that is compatible with 19pin USB 3.0
