Electronic Materials and Components
High-tech ...in your palm
Waves of Microelectronics are sweeping the every accessible device and electronic equipment. Amid rapid technological innovation, the lead time from development to commercialization is becoming drastically shortened and high technology is put to use one after another as palm-sized products. Fujikura has a long history of developing a wide variety of wiring materials from their development and prototype production to mass-production. We intend to supply high-tech electronic components as system products that satisfy user needs.
This is our policy for electronic component development at Fujikura as a comprehensive wiring system creator.
USB 3.0 Cable Assembly
|We were ahead of others in developing a cable assembly that conforms to USB 3.0, which is the next-generation standard enabling 5 Gbps transmission, 10 times faster than USB 2.0. It was the world's first genuine cable assembly USB 3.0-certified by USB-IF in 2011.
In these days where information terminals and cloud-computing environments are widespread, we have achieved the world's thinnest 3.6 mm-diameter cable for greater compactness.
Using a proprietary low-loss shielded differential pair cable as the signal line, and introducing transmission analysis technology and tuning based on impedance matching processing techniques for the terminal assembly, the product has low loss in wide bandwidth in spite of its small diameter.
The signal line is a shielded pair cable with silver-plated annealed copper wires, using low-density/low-loss olefin resin and metallic foil. It has achieved a low loss of 3 dB/m at 2.5 GHz (5 Gbps) and 6.25 dB/m even at the third harmonic of 7.5 GHz.Z
The product lineup consists of an up to 2 meters long type and an up to 1 meter long and thin (3.6 mm-diameter) type. Both types support the Standard A-Plug, Standard B-Plug, and Micro B-Plug assemblies.
