Overview

Today's data-intensive mission 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, leading to severe consequences that can risk the mission.

Optimal Viewing On Displays
DVI Standard Harness Cross Section image

Standard DIV harness cross-section

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.

Applications

GORE DVI Cables (Digital Only) are engineered to perform reliably in a variety of aircraft applications, including:

  • cockpit displays
  • flight crew workstations
  • flight management systems
  • weather mapping

If you have any questions or to discuss your specific application needs, please contact a Gore representative.

Benefits

GORE DVI Cables (Digital Only) provide aircraft system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:

  • single-link configuration built specifically for digital component of DVI systems
