eEver and Etron Tech launch E-Marker IC - EJ903 for the OIAC / USB4 Redriver Active Cables It Can Fulfill the Widest Range of Type-C Cable Applications

Aiming at the growth opportunities of the connector/transmission cables which driven by the upgrade of USB4 and Thunderbolt4 both on the host and device products, eEver Technology, Inc. and Etron Technology, Inc. (TPEx: 5351.TW) USB Type-C E-Marker controller IC – EJ903 is now applied in the USB 3.2 OIAC (Optically Isolated Active Cable) / USB4 Re-Driver Active Cable Solutions. It reports the transmission rate, power, even response of the linking mechanism. Thus, customers can easily grasp the Type-C cable information, enhance the user experience of “one cable to connect all.”

eEver and Etron Tech are pleased to deliver the Emarker solution for the new generation of OIAC (Optically Isolated Active Cable) which made of optical fibers first came into the market. It is the world’s first solution that supports USB-IF’s latest OIAC specification. This OIAC (Optically Isolated Active Cable), embedded with E-Marker IC EJ903及PD controller IC-EJ899T, transmit the Display audio/video or data.  At present, the OIAC cable has a length of 30 meters, which meets the 10 Gbps transmission rate – the highest USB3.2 Gen2 specification. The EJ903 OIAC is now adopted by the world’s first-tier customer for video conferencing mainly used in large spaces meeting room, and expected to be available in the spring of 2022.

eEver and Etron leading the world’s launched its first USB4 Re-driver Active Cable Solution which embedded with the USB4™ E-Marker IC–EJ903 and Lerain USB4 Re-driver IC. The EJ903 USB4 Active Cable can achieve transmission rates of up to 40Gbps (Gigabits per second) It provides the most comprehensive high-speed transmission solution for world-wide customers. EJ903 also supports USB3.2 Type-C active transmission cable for up to five meters cable solution, It can add on a USB retimer IC to meet the usage of video conferencing, AR/VR, and industrial 4.0 applications.

The USB Type-C active cable with a line length of less than five meters, and featuring redrivers from ON Semiconductor– to launch the world’s first active cable that supports dual direction, that is, the system or device can be connected at both ends. EJ903 is the first choice for USB Type-C cable applications. It supports USB PD 3.1, reports the length of the cable current and the transmission data rate.
