ATEN Unveils New USB Switches with Power Pass-Through
US3310 and US3342 are created for seamless connections between multiple devices
Sydney, Australia (September 2, 2019) – ATEN ANZ PTY LTD., a subsidiary of ATEN International Co., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, today introduces 2 new models of USB peripherals, the US3310 2-port USB-C Dock Switch with Power Pass-through, and the US3342 2-port USB-C Gen 2 Sharing Switch with Power Pass-through, offering new ways of connecting devices to your computer. Both of these switches support 85W USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 pass-through, and can charge your laptop while also providing enough power for power-hungry devices, such as external hard drives or gaming peripherals.
To meet the varied needs of different scenarios, display modes, and sharing purposes, ATEN’s new USB switches are available in two models:
US3310 2-port USB-C Dock Switch with Power Pass-Through
The US3310 is a dock switch that features one-button switching between two sources – laptop and Android smartphone, or Mac and iPad Pro (2018 models or later). The US3310 utilizes the full feature set of USB-C with video, audio, data and power transfer within a single cable. With only one set of display, keyboard, and mouse, users can seamlessly control two different systems and create a personalized desktop environment while saving desktop space. The key features include:
1. Share Devices With 2 Systems – No more dealing with plugging and unplugging. Allows a USB-C laptop and an Android smartphone to share one HDMI monitor and all connected USB peripherals.
2. 2-sec Speedy Switching to Stay Efficient – Switching between two systems only takes two seconds, making your workflow more efficient. Your HDMI connection will stay active without disrupting the layout when switching. The USB connection works as a USB hub, which means you can keep all the functionality of a keyboard and mouse, such as media keys or extra mouse buttons.
3. Power to Laptop and Phone Simultaneously – The 85W USB-C power delivery 3.0 pass-through means you can charge your phone and laptop simultaneously while connected via an additional USB-C power adapter.
4. Superior Video Quality and Ultra-Fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 Data Transfer Speed – Support maximum resolution up to 4K@30Hz for 4K TVs or ultra-wide and gaming monitors. USB 3.2 Gen 1 provides data transfer speed up to 5Gb/s, allowing users to share external storage devices for swapping data between two systems quickly and easily.
5. Extend the Desktop Environment to your Smartphone – Connect your smartphone with US3310 to build a workstation in Samsung DeX mode for multitasking, and even switch to a laptop once you have heavy tasks to do.
With only one set of display, keyboard, and mouse, US3310 users can seamlessly control and charge two different systems and create a personalized desktop environment while saving desktop space.
US3342 2-port USB-C Gen 2 Sharing Switch with Power Pass-Through
This is the world’s first 10G USB Type-C supported sharing switch especially designed for programmers, developers, system administrators, PC repair technicians, and content creators to enhance the efficiency of dual-system operations. Through the ATEN Bezel X software, the US3342 can seamlessly share data across 2 systems with only 1 set of keyboard, monitor, and mouse. Key features include:
1. Share Devices with 2 Computers – US3342 only needs one set of keyboard, monitor, and mouse to seamlessly control two systems and share data without the need to plug and unplug or configure complicated network-based setups.
2. Share without Boundaries – Supports cross-system data transfer, including Windows to Mac, Mac to Mac, and Windows (newer version) to Windows (older version) or vice versa.
3. Operate Two Computers as if they are One – Switching between computers has never been so easy and so intuitive. Mouse Switching allows you to effortlessly move the mouse cursor across the screen border and onto the target computer to switch control without clicking a button. Less time waiting on switching, more time focusing on creating and producing.
4. Make Quicker Work of Everything – US3342 builds a direct link between two computers with up to 10Gbps transfer speed. With Clipboard Sharing, you can copy and paste or drag and drop large files, images, and text directly from one to another in seconds without the trouble of using a storage device as an intermediate with double the transfer time. The ultra-fast 10Gbps transfer rate allows you to work with unprecedented speed, 20x faster than USB 2.0.
5. Power to One Laptop While Connected – The 85W USB-C power delivery 3.0 pass-through function allows the charging of another laptop via an additional USB-C power adapter.
US3342 supports cross-system 10G data transfer, including Windows to Mac, Mac to Mac, and Windows (newer version) to Windows (older version), or vice versa.
