Kingston Digital has launched the Nucleum 7-in-1 type-C USB Hub in India. Nucleum is said to be an ideal hub for newer MacBook’s as it provides extra USB-C and USB-A ports as well as HDMI and SD/microSD card slots. It is now available at Rs 6,900 across major retail and e-tail stores.

Nucleum comes with multiple ports built to handle all the common accessories such as mice, keyboards and even a second monitor.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can sometimes occur between USB 3.0 ports (on any device or system) and Wi-Fi devices such as routers or wireless mice and keyboards. Broadband noise generated from the USB 3.0 data spectrum can impact wireless radio receivers broadcasting at 2.4GHz when both are in close proximity. EMI on Nucleum is said to be mitigated due to its shielding and port placement.

Shielding is placed on the USB ports and the layout for both USB Type A and C are opposite to each other instead of side by side. This is claimed to reduce the possibility of EMI and the physical placement is said to allow greater room between ports to help account for plugs and power adapters of different sizes.
