All Resources For GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables for Civil Aircraft

Overview

Passengers expect reliable performance from their portable electronic devices while traveling. They want to download IFE content and charge their devices quickly and easily. As a result, aircraft need faster data transfer to reduce downtime and meet passenger demands.

GORE Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables provide reliable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits over longer distances. They carry more data greater than 5 meters for faster IFE content uploads and downloads. Gore’s cables support power management from 9-32V systems to ensure passengers can charge their devices quickly and easily.

Size and Weight Savings with Gore’s Materials

GORE Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables have a unique construction with approved aerospace materials that provide durable protection in the most demanding aerospace environments, including a wide range of temperatures. The high-density construction of our cables significantly reduces weight and diameter for improved installation. And, the small cable diameter increases flexibility with a tight bend radius for easy routing.

The excellent signal integrity of our cables can enable utilization of smaller gauge cables in your system architecture. Because of their electrical performance and long transmission distances, our cables can reduce the need for additional signal amplification — further decreasing weight and power requirements.
