StackableUSB™ Standards Organization Moves to Incorporate USB 3.0

As StackableUSB gains market recognition in the embedded, sensor, military and robotic industries, Chairperson Susan Wooley has announced the organization is moving forward with the approval of a single USB 3.0 channel inside the popular StackableUSB connector.

By defining pins which had "quietly" been left undefined, the USB 3.0 channel will enable the StackableUSB connector to deliver actual throughput greater than 5 Gbits/sec which is 10 times the speed of a single Hi-Speed USB channel. With this announcement, StackableUSB gains throughput similar to PCIe Gen 2.0 and Serail ATA (SATA) III without the burden of mixing these very complex and distinctly different protocols inside a single connector.
