VS6320: HDBaseT-USB3 Extension IC

The Valens VS6320 chipset extends SuperSpeed USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps), high-speed USB 2.0 (480Mbps), control signals, and power over a standard Category 6A cable for distances of up to 100 meters (328 feet). The chipset supports all USB transfer types: Control, Bulk, Interrupt and Isochronous. The VS6320 is the first ever ASIC-based USB 3.2 extension solution, facilitating a new wave of next-gen USB peripherals in a variety of industries. In contrast to existing USB extension solutions, which require an FPGA, an external extension box, or an expensive active cable the VS6320 can be embedded within the end-product (e.g., cameras). The result is a standardized technology operating over a simplified cabling infrastructure that improves product and installation aesthetics.
