Industry’s Fastest USB Controller Cards

Unlike most USB controllers in today’s marketplace, RocketU 1400 Series controllers feature fully independent USB device ports, each of which is powered by a dedicated USB 3.2 20Gb/s controller. This unique Per-Port Performance architecture enables each USB Type-C port to deliver maximum throughput.

Blazing Fast PCIe 3.0 Host Interface

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

Industry Proven Per-Port Performance USB Architecture; Dedicated Bandwidth & Independent Resources
RocketU 1488C controllers employ the latest generation of HighPoint’s industry-proven Per-Port Performance USB architecture, which enables each Type-C port to deliver up 20Gb/s of transfer bandwidth. Each independent device channel is backed by a dedicated USB 3.2 20Gb/s controller, and robust PCIe 3.0 host interface. This unique connectivity architecture ensures each hosted USB device can continuously operate at maximum throughput, without interference from neighboring USB connections, or taxing system resources. The dedicated USB 3.2 controllers also allow each port to deliver up to 7.5W of power for device operation or charging purposes.

Universal Compatibility

RocketU 1488C controllers can be installed into any computing platform with a PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 slot. Each independent USB Type-C port is capable of supporting any industry-standard USB 2.0/ USB 3.2 Gen1/ USB 3.2 Gen2 device, including USB drives, cameras, printers, capture devices and peripherals.
