Core Technology
USB Virtual Link Technology™
USB Virtual Link Technology enables any USB devices including printers, scanners, HDD,
card readers and more to be easily connected and shared virtually on home or office networks
as if connected directly via USB. With this technology, you can share USB devices, and place
them even in a remote place. This is one of our core technologies obtained through our years
of experience in device networking, which started with our 1st print server development in
1991. As more USB devices are used on the network for various areas such as
medical/educational institutions, industrial/retail facilities, and factories, the demand for this
technology is soaring. Silex, the USB device networking expert, will be you best engineering
partner.
USB Virtual Link Technology can be found in:
scanners, MFPs, IC card R/W, medical equipment, surveillance cameras, digital cameras, hard
disks, routers, interactive boards (electronic blackboards), monitors, projectors, USB TV tuners,
music players, sewing machine, home media servers, and astronomical telescopes, etc.
