StarTech Launches Two New Thunderbolt 3 Adapters

StarTech Launches Two New Thunderbolt 3 Adapters has announced the release of two new Thunderbolt 3 adapters that enable access to many different external peripherals and devices using various interfaces. The two new Thunderbolt 3 accessories allow users to extend the life of their external hard drives, USB devices and other specialized laptop peripherals.

The first new Thunderbolt 3 accessory, the Thunderbolt 3 to USB 3.1 Controller Adapter (SKU: TB33A1C), provides dedicated USB 3.0 bandwidth to three USB-A ports and one USB-C port (total of 20 Gbps). The adapter gives the user access to high performance USB peripherals such as storage controllers and 3D scanners from Thunderbolt 3 based laptops. The second new product, the Thunderbolt 3 eSATA Adapter with USB 3.1 (10 Gbps) Port (SKU: TB3ESATU31), offers connections to an external eSATA hard drive or SSD, and to a USB device simultaneously. Both products are beneficial for Windows and MacBook Pro users, where no USB-A ports are available.

“ continues to provide connectivity products that take advantage of Thunderbolt 3 technology and maximize the user’s experience while preserving their existing investment in peripherals. These products extend the life of high performance legacy peripheral products while allowing users to transition to a Thunderbolt 3 based laptop,” said Nirav Gandhi, Director, Product Development,

Features of the new Thunderbolt 3 accessories include:

Thunderbolt 3 to USB 3.1 Controller Adapter (SKU: TB33A1C)

Four times the bandwidth of a traditional USB 3.0 hub, flexible configuration with three USB-A and one USB-C port
Flexible connectivity to existing USB 3.0 devices, while being future ready for USB-C devices
2nd Thunderbolt 3 port to daisy chain additional Thunderbolt 3 devices, DisplayPort monitor, or fifth USB device with dedicated 10 Gbps bandwidth
Stylish aluminum housing design with included Thunderbolt 3 cable
Convenient front charging port for mobile devices
External power adapter included for support of USB devices with larger draw

Thunderbolt 3 eSATA Adapter with USB 3.1 (10 Gbps) Port (SKU: TB3ESATU31)

Provides both an eSATA (6 Gbps) and a USB 3.1 (Gen 2 Type-A, 10 Gbps) port connection from a single Thunderbolt 3 port
Supports Thunderbolt 3 data rates of up to 20 Gbps, with two dedicated PCI Express lanes (one per port)
Compact and durable housing design with an integrated Thunderbolt 3 cable, for maximum portability
Supplies power for bus-powered devices (up to 1A on USB port)

Thunderbolt 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gb/s, creating one compact port that does it all – delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying power.
