THine Announces BellWether Electronic Corporation’s Development of Flexible Flat Cable for THine’s Next-Generation High-Speed Interface Specification, V-by-One® US


2018/12/27

TOKYO (December 27, 2018) – THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ: 6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, has been collaborating with several partners in development of transmission lines for THine’s next-generation high-speed interface specification for 4K and 8K video images, V-by-One® US, and BellWether Electronic Corporation *1, one of THine’s partners, has completed development of flexible flat cable that provides potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification and will start sale of production samples of the flexible flat cable.
 
THine has established V-by-One® US specification as a next-generation high-speed interface technology that follows THine’s high-speed transmission technology V-by-One® HS, which is now used as interface in most of 4K televisions in the world as de facto standard.  V-by-One® US specification defines high-speed transmission rate of 16Gbps per lane at the maximum (16,000,000,000 bits per second), and high-speed transmission as quadruple as V-by-One® HS will be possible according to the specification.  In order to accomplish transmission lines for 8K video images by V-by-One® US while maintaining the number of transmission lines for transmission of 4K video images by V-by-One® HS, THine has been collaborating in development of transmission lines with several harness, connector, and material manufacturers who agree to standardization of V-by-One® US technology.
 
While BellWether Electronic Corporation has already commercialized high-speed signal transmission cables for TVs, laptop PCs, servers, and gaming machines, it has completed development of “Hyper Flat Cable,” a high-speed transmission flexible flat cable that provides potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification, and is ready for its mass-production.
 
“While THine has started delivering evaluation samples of first ASSP *2 incorporating V-by-One® US technology,” says Yasuhiro Takada, President and CEO of THine Electronics, “THine would like to welcome provision of the new flexible flat cable that provides potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification.  Users of V-by-One® US will have more choices of flexible flat cables that comply with V-by-One® US.
As 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games are approaching, THine will continue to expand collaboration with harness, connector, and material manufacturers who agree to standardization of V-by-One® US technology, and will propose low-cost 4K and 8K video image transmission systems by V-by-One® US.  THine aims to contribute to customers and innovation of video image market as a leading company of high-speed interface technology.”
