USB Amplifier



A USB amplifier is a device used to boost a USB signal to increased lengths, for distribution to remotely located USB peripherals. USB amplifiers can boost USB signals from 50 meters (165 feet) up to 500 meters (1640 feet). A USB amplifier is often used in conjunction with long USB cables that transfer the boosted signal to and from your USB devices.
