Orange Micro USB 2.0 Cardbus PC Card
The OrangeUSB 2.0 Hi-Speed CardBus PC Card allows you the freedom of mobility with your portable computer. The USB 2.0 CardBus is a dramatic performance increase over the standard USB 1.1. Whereas USB 1.1 is only 12Mbits/s, the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed specification used by the OrangeUSB 2.0 CardBus runs at up to 480Mbits/s. USB, standing for Universal Serial Bus, allows you to attach multiple peripheral devices simultaneously with automatic device detection and installation. The OrangeUSB 2.0 Hi-Speed CardBus Card is "backwards-compatible" which means you can plug in your older USB peripherals along with your USB 2.0 Hi-Speed peripherals with no loss in performance of either.
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed will extend the speed of peripheral-to-PC connections from the 12MB/second we enjoy with current USB 1.1 all the way to 480MB/second--40 times more than current capabilities, and 80MB/sec faster than FireWire
This improvement in turn makes possible faster broadband Internet, higher resolution digital video, next generation printers, scanners and external storage devices
As a nice touch, USB 2.0 is fully backward compatible, using existing or new cables
The OrangeUSB 2.0 HiSpeed PCI Cardbus PC Card is 100% compliant with the USB 2.0 specification
