Docking Station for the New Generation
The USB interface has been the standard for PC hardware and the new USB 3.1 standard entails several improvements. Not only the data transfer rates are much faster but also the charging of smart devices. And finally, the reversible-plug connector is introduced to USB as well. Compared to USB 3.0 the transfer rates are doubled, thus the USB 3.1 interface achieves speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s which makes the interface fast enough to even max out current SSDs. Another novelty, the reversible-plug USB Type-C connector, can be plugged into an appropriate USB Type-C connector.
Docking and Loading in Record Time
This docking station provides enough space for a SATA III hard drive/SSD with the form factor of 2.5" or 3.5". Using the new USB 3.1 Type-C port new speed heights can be achieved and the connection is easier than ever, since the Type-C connector is reversible.
The IB-117-U31 presents itself in noble matt black design of a combination of high-quality aluminium and plastic. A real visual treat in practical pen pocket format.
The IB-117-U31 works with computers and notebooks to USB 3.0 / 2.0 / 1.1 interfaces, with appropriate cables. The full USB 3.1 transfer rate, however, can only be achieved with a USB 3.1 interface.
• USB 3.1 up to 10 Gbit/s - backwards compatible with USB 3.0/2.0/1.1.
• Plug & Play.
• LED for power and HDD activity.

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.
