Today's data-intensive aircraft requirements are pushing the need for cables that can stream data and video reliably at higher speeds in airborne digital video interface (DVI) systems. Cables must also meet stringent industry requirements necessary for reliable performance in DVI systems operating in demanding radar environments. But, engineers often face the challenge of designing harnesses with digital components that turn out to be insufficient for harsh aerospace environments.
Standard DIV harness cross-section
Optimal Viewing on Displays
GORE DVI Cables are designed specifically for the digital component of airborne DVI systems. Our single-link cables deliver exceptional signal quality supporting the highest video resolution for optimal viewing on aircraft displays. Unlike many substitutes, our cables meet strict requirements for impedance control, insertion loss, skew, and EMI shielding — providing stable performance in demanding radar environments.
Easy Fit into Standard Harness Designs
Our cables make it easier for design engineers to use them in standard DVI harnesses. They're smaller, lighter weight, and more flexible without sacrificing durability compared to alternatives. So you can fit them easily into a harness cross-section with other components, and they won’t get damaged or break.
GORE DVI Cables (Digital Only) are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of aircraft applications, including:
- cockpit displays
- flight management systems
- in-flight entertainment (IFE)
- weather mapping
If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, please contact a Gore representative.
