Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd.

Sumitomo Electric will showcase its Thunderbolt cables at KOBA 2013 which is taking place May 13-16, 2013 in Seoul, Korea.

KOBA is one of Korea’s biggest broadcasting, audio and lighting equipment show hosted by Korea E&Ex and the Korean Broadcast Engineers & Technicians Association. Sumitomo Electric will showcase two types of Thunderbolt cables (metal and optical) which are developed by incorporating its advanced electric wire technology and high-speed data transmission technology into the technical specifications for Thunderbolt technology provided by Intel Corporation. We are looking forward to your visit to our booth location: C977, Hall C.


Thunderbolt Cable・Thunderbolt Cable
The Thunderbolt cable is developed by incorporating our advanced electric wire technology and high-speed data transmission technology. This cable achieves bidirectional data transfer at an ultra high rate of up to 10 Gbps; more than 20 times faster compared to the currently popular USB 2.0 data transfer system, and twice as fast as a USB 3.0 type. The cable is well received for good operability and product lineup. The cable comes in lengths of 0.3 m to 3.0 m and colors of black and white to best serve customers' needs.
Optical Thunderbolt Cable・Optical Thunderbolt Cable
Sumitomo Electric has become the first company to receive Thunderbolt certification from Intel Corporation for the optical Thunderbolt cable and started the mass production in December 2012. (As of April 2013, only Sumitomo Electric received the certification.) This cable comes in lengths of up to 30 m. Sumitomo Electric’s special optical fiber will provide high bend performance even when pinched by up to 180 degrees or tangled in knots.
