Yesterday I posted about the new Thecus USB 3.0 enclosure, and I mentioned about the expansion kit you could also get that includes the UBS 3.0 card. Well today they actually announced that card. The card can come in the bundle with the D0204 or you can buy it alone. It also works in some of the NAS boxes that Thecus offers as well to add USB 3.0 functionality to them, I’ve always wondered what that expansion slot was going to be used for on them, and now we know!

With transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps, USB 3.0 marks a new standard in high-speed connectivity. Today, storage innovator Thecus® Technology is pleased to announce a new product in its ever-expanding lineup of products for the digital lifestyle – the CU30N. Sporting two USB 3.0 ports and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0 and 1.1 standards, the CU30N is the easy way to bring your computer system into the age of USB 3.0.

The CU30N is a full height PCIe add on card that is compatible with PCI Express x1, x4, x8 and x16 slots. Installation is extremely easy and no external power source is required to get it up and running. Once installed, the CU30N gives your system two USB 3.0 ports that are ready to connect with all sorts of USB 3.0 devices.

On the hardware front, the CU30N utilizes the NEC ?PD720200 Processor – the world’s first USB host controller compliant with USB 3.0 and xHCI specifications. With the NEC ?PD720200, the CU30N supports four modes of transfer, including Low-speed (1.5Mbps), full-speed (12Mbps), high-speed (480 Mbps), and super-speed (5Gpbs).

The CU30N can also be used to upgrade certain Thecus® NAS units for USB 3.0 connectivity. Currently, the CU30N can be installed in the following models:

· N4200

· N7700 Series

· N8800 Series

The CU30N is fully compatible with PCs using Windows 7/Vista/XP 32/64bit operating systems.
