Product Description

Feature Bullets

  • One USB 3.1 Type-A (USB-A) and one Type-C (USB-C) downstream connectors. Up to 10Gbps data transfer speed, twice as fast as USB 3.0.
  • Low Profile board. Include both Low Profile and Regular Size PCIe brackets. PCIe x4 card fits in any PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 3.0 x4 or x8 or x16 slot.
  • Instead of taking 5V power directly from power supply, our design includes power switching regulator circuit that automatically converts 12V from PCIe bus or from 15-Pin SATA power to ensure sufficient 5V/3A bus power on USB 3.1 Type C port and 5V/2A on Type A port.
  • No driver installation is required on Mac OS X 10.9 to 10.10, and 10.12 to 10.13 (NOTE: does NOT work on OS X 10.11), Win10, 8.1, 8, and Server 2012. Driver download is available for 32/64 bit Windows 7/Vista, and Windows Server 2008/2003. Note: UASP featue is only available with Microsoft and OS X built-in drivers. Currently, the ASMedia driver does not have UASP feature.
  • Built with ASMedia ASM2142. Fully RoHS compliant. Made in Taiwan. Note: The card does not support DP Alt Mode or USB Power Delivery.



Product Description
 

Add one Type-C and one Type-A SuperSpeedPlus USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports with up to 10Gbps data rate to your system.

 

Features

  • Connector:
    •  1x Type-A + 1x Type-C USB 3.1 female
    •  1 x 15-pin SATA power connector (optional connection)

    

  • Chipset: ASMedia ASM2142

 

  • Software:
    •  No driver installation is required on Mac OS X 10.9 to 10.10, and 10.12 to 10.13 (NOTE: does NOT work on OS X 10.11), Win10/8.1/8, Server 2012, and Linux 2.6.31 and later. The OS native built-in drivers feature UASP.
    •  The ASMedia driver for 32/64 bit Windows 7/Vista, and Server 2008/2003 is available from our website.

 

  • Data transfer rate:
    •  USB 3.1 Gen2 up to 10 Gbps

 

  • Power:
    •  Support up to 3A/5V on USB-C and 2A/5V on USB-A downstream ports.
    •  The 15-pin SATA power connection is optional for additional power source. Each USB port can provide up to 3A/5V or 2A/5V power. If full loaded, it requires at least 25W (3A*5V + 2A*5V) power. The power supply from PCIe bus to a 4-lane/low profile card is 10W (max) per PCI Express specification.

 

  • Instead of taking 5V power directly from power supply, our design includes power switching regulator circuit that automatically converts 12V from PCIe bus or from 15-Pin SATA power to ensure sufficient 5V/3A bus power on USB-C port and 5V/2A on USB-A port.
