Micro coaxial cables have been used as internal wiring materials in small electronic devices such as notebook PCs because of their excellent transmission characteristics at high frequencies and their small diameter and flexibility.
In recent years, micro coaxial cables have come to be used in a variety of applications, and demand higher bending strength and applications of higher speed data transmission.
The photo on the right shows an example of a higher bending strength micro coaxial cable. By changing the material and configuration of the center conductor, we have achieved more than 10 times the bending performance of the conventional type. Our cable can be designed and manufactured to meet customer requirements for bending performance.
With the advent of high-speed interface standards, such as USB 3.1 and PCI Express Gen4, with transmission speeds exceeding 10 Gbps, there is a need for reducing the amount of attenuation than ever for internal wiring materials. Fujikura is developing micro coaxial cables with even lower attenuation by improving the insulation and shield structure.
