The PG05.6 reader is based on the USB 4.0 technology which is designed to achieve speeds of up to 40Gb/s. When used in conjunction with the CFexpress 4.0 (PCIe Gen 4) memory cards, benchmark tests highlight a tripling of data transfer speed from card to host. The PG05.6 is also equipped with the company’s patented magnetic base and an adhesive metal plate that allows users to mount the reader to any work surface, such as the back of a laptop. This reader is also supplied with a certified USB 4.0 cable – assuring maximum performance.
“Our new PG05.6 reader provides a tremendous leap forward in workflow performance by allowing content offload speeds to be reduced by 67% when compared to the performance of USB 3.2, Gen 2 technology of our current product line-up”, said Wes Brewer, CEO and founder. “Along with faster speeds comes the need to provide extra cooling capability for reader and card – something we’ve spent more than a year perfecting in the new design.”
