News THine Announces Support for New Use Cases in High-Speed Contactless Connectivity using STMicroelectronics’ Technology

2023.10.23 Release
TOKYO (October 23rd, 2023) – THine Electronics, Inc. (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6769, “THine”), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI as well as valuable AI/IoT-based solutions, today announced its support for new use cases in contactless connectivity by applying THine’s high-speed serial interface technology to STMicroelectronics’ 60 GHz RF millimeter-wave technology.

ST’s ST60A2 contactless 60 GHz transceivers enable short-range, point-to-point communications at multi-Gigabit data rates with very low power consumption. Together with V-by-One® and other interface technologies, THine now enables high-speed data transmitting solutions for new use cases easily by board-to-board contactless connections (e.g., removing flex cables and removing cables in industrial electronic systems that undergo mechanical stress) and connector-free solutions (e.g., water- and dust-proof electronic system equipment, seamless docking and device-to-device data synchronization).
Solution for detachable touch panel display
(Mechanical connectors replacement for large signage modules, water-proof and dust-proof, and vibration-resistant devices can also be realized.)
Seamless device-to-device data transfer without cables and connectors
(e.g., docking stations for PCs, game consoles)

Examples of applications:
  • Connector-free data communication for large signage display modules
  • Connector-free data communication for docking stations for PCs, game consoles, etc.
  • Device testing on production lines, such as smartphones and other electronic devices, to speed up device testing with wireless connections.
  • Cable-free data communication for drones, small digital appliances, consumer electronics with touch panels, etc.
  • Data communication for detachable devices that can be used for both notebook PCs and tablet PCs
  • Connector-free data communication and detachability of medical devices such as disposable endoscopes, etc.

Starting with the demonstration that will be exhibited at the Korea Electronics Show in Seoul, Korea, held from October 24th, we will continue our efforts to contribute to the evolution of use cases that require contactless data communication in the global market, including the Japanese market.

THine will continue to actively collaborate with partners, including those in wireless and optical transmission technologies, in order to contribute to the further evolution of advanced use cases by expanding the application areas of the value of smart connectivity by utilizing its unique interface technology.
