Homega Research is very pleased to announce today the contribution of Robert Eisses, CEO of Icron Technologies, a pioneer in USB solutions devoted to device networking, to the Net -atHome™2007 conference. Homega Research is also very happy to welcome ICRON Technologies as a Net -atHome™2007 Silver sponsor and exhibitor. In his paper entitled "Taking USB beyond the desktop", Robert Eisses will address in the conference plenary session devoted to "10 countries; 1 connected home world" the status of the USB technologies and its challenges for the next few years, while attendees will learn about the latest developments related to USB based connectivity within a home network over UWB, 802.11 or power line. "Since its introduction in the late 1990s, USB has become an enormous success, creating an industry that has delivered billions of devices into the marketplace. Designed as a desktop solution, USB has become a ubiquitous computing technology and is the primary peripheral interface for connecting everything from mice, keyboards and MP3 players to digital cameras and mobile phones to the PC or MAC", says Robert. "Icron successfully leverages the existing USB infrastructure, by extending its usefulness well beyond the original desktop limit".
