I still get questions about Light Peak versus USB 3.0 so I’d like to set the record straight.
LightPeak has been demonstrated once, at one event.
USB 3.0 has an Ecosystem of IP, Software, Chip, and Hardware with dozens of products shipping.
I’m sure LightPeak will be successful in the future, but USB 3.0 is taking-off now
And since Analog is hot, here’s the latest on our analog offerings.
Startech announced an ExpressCard
Century has an HDD Stage rack which is suspiciously like the Sharkoon HDD docking station. These accept standard SATA Hard Disk Drives and let you use USB 3.0.
I’m told you can buy USB 3.0 Hosts and Drives in Taiwan and in Japan pretty easily, but it’s all back-ordered in the U.S. I’m thinking the suppliers underestimated the demand?
