ATEN Introduces Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station

ATEN Technology today announced the UH7230 – Thunderbolt 3 Multiport Dock solution. The UH7230 Thunderbolt 3 Multiport Dock quickly connects peripherals and displays video content from a laptop. The Thunderbolt 3 Multiport Docking Station allows users to add an additional monitor for enhanced multitasking, such as designing and viewing of movies, or photos in high definition.

Thunderbolt 3 provides high speed data transfers, powerful performance and lightweight in a single form factor. So, while more laptops – like MacBooks and Ultrabooks – are adopting the interface, many users are still faced with the challenge of connecting multiple devices with legacy interfaces due to lack of the proper port.

UH7230 key features include:

  • Support of dual 4K or 5K resolution for graphics-intensive multitasking – allows users to connect one 5K display or two 4K displays (one DisplayPort and one Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port) with nearly 16 million more pixels than HDTVs. Whether editing video or digital media, designing graphics, or using applications that require high-definition visuals, users will benefit from astonishing resolution, contrast, and color depth.
  • Blazing fast speed to boost productivity – with up to 40Gbps bandwidth, users can transfer files faster (a 4K movie takes less than 30 seconds) and reduce waiting, freeing up more time to accomplish other tasks.
  • USB Power Delivery 2.0 for Mac and Windows laptops – supporting up to 85W of power delivery, the UH7230 is an intuitive central hub for not only connectivity expansion, but also for charging a laptop and USB accessories. The UH7230 can provide power to matched USB-C Windows or Mac laptops with PD Profile specifications of 20V/4.25A, 15V/3A, 9V/3A, and 5V/3A.
  • Simplified workspace via a single cable – using the (included) single Thunderbolt 3 cable, the docking station expands connectivity up to 8 ports, including audio, Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt 3 USB-C and USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports to accommodate a user’s most demanding computing needs. A Thunderbolt 3 port is also provided to daisy chain up to 5 additional Thunderbolt 3 devices, such as data storage.

The UH7230 Thunderbolt 3 Multiport Dock is now available for $220. More information is here.
