Atech Flash Technology Soars with Thunderbolt 3 with the Blackbird UX-1 at NAB 2016
Atech Flash Technology (AFT) previewed their upcoming Blackbird UX-1 with Thunderbolt 3 technology at NAB 2016.
For professionals that want a 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt link to simultaneously access multiple high performance flash storage media interfaces like SD UHS-II, CFast 2.0, XQD 2.0, and SATA SSD, the rack mountable Blackbird UX-1 is in a class of its own.
AFT also showed their MB-Dock Thunderbolt 3 Dock which has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A downstream ports, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C downstream port, an Ethernet port, a DisplayPort output, and audio ports.
AFT had other USB products at NAB 2016 such as the Blackbird VX-2SSD USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gb/s) dual SSD media dock with a USB Type-C connector.
If your desktop doesn't have a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Host, you can use AFT's Blackbird MX-1 PCI Express based USB Host Add-in Card.
Atech Flash Technology (AFT) has demonstrated how to leverage the new Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gb/s) and USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gb/s) technologies to support even faster access to 4K content no mater which storage media is used.
