Cable Performance & Specifications

GORE HDMI Cables for Aerospace & Defense offer a low-weight design that includes an engineered fluoropolymer outer jacket, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) binder, braided shield, color-coded composite dielectric, and either silver-plated copper or SPC alloy conductors. This low-weight cable bundle also brings the following features and benefits:


Our cable bundles for 1.4 Cat2 and 2.0 protocols support a 4K (2160p) video resolution. Over the aircraft and military vehicle lifetime, they also provide outstanding signals at high data and video transfer rates of up to 18 Gb/s. These features yield a richer, clearer viewing experience on displays, where soldiers and flight crews can view critical information and passengers can view in-flight entertainment (IFE).


Thanks to their lower weight and smaller cable diameter, our HDMI cable bundles for military or commercial aircraft and defense vehicles increase flexibility with a tighter bend radius, making for less complicated routing in tiny spaces surrounding avionics and vectronics.
