Data Sheet: GORE® HDMI Cables (1.4 Cat2 / 2.0 Versions) for Aircraft
Data Sheets, English
High-definition video is essential for modern avionics, from critical displays in the cockpit to cabin displays for entertainment. GORE HDMI Cables for Aircraft from W. L. Gore & Associates support a wide array of aircraft video applications with crystal-clear 4K (2160p) resolution and fast data transmission up to 18 Gb. In addition to excellent video performance, our HDMI aviation cables offer a small diameter and light design to enhance flexibility and make routing simple.
Cable Performance and Specifications
GORE HDMI Cables for Aircraft offer a low-weight design with a cable bundle that includes an engineered fluoropolymer jacket, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) binder, braided shield, color-coded composite dielectric, and a silver-plated copper/SPC alloy conductor. This compact, light design produces a tighter bend radius for optimal flexibility and delivers the following benefits:
Crystal Clear, High-Definition Displays
GORE HDMI Cables for Aircraft support a video resolution of 4 K (2160p), four times the clarity of 1080p. Over the aircraft’s lifetime, they also provide outstanding signals for high-speed data transmission up to 18 Gb. These features yield a rich, clear, defined viewing experience on cockpit and cabin displays, where flight crews and passengers alike can view inflight entertainment (IFE) and critical information.
Low-Weight, Flexible Construction
Thanks to their lower weight and smaller cable diameter, our HDMI cables for civil and military aircraft increase flexibility with a tighter bend radius, making for less complicated routing in tiny spaces of new and existing aircraft.
Meeting Rigorous Standards across Several Applications
Aerospace environments demand rugged aviation cables that meet rigorous standards for strength and performance in challenging conditions. To ensure our HDMI cables deliver reliable performance for the life of the aircraft, they are tested and pre-qualified to ensure compliance with standard SAE AS4373™ for Test Methods for Insulated Electric Wire. They also meet the following standards:
- Flammability: ABD0031 (AITM 2.0005); BSS7230; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part I
- Toxicity: ABD0031 (AITM 3.0005); BSS7239
- Smoke Density: ABD0031 (AITM 3.0008B); BSS7238; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part V
- Environmental Testing, Jacket and Marking: ANSI/NEMA WC 27500
Our HDMI aviation cables are appropriate for high-definition aircraft displays serving aircrew and passengers alike. Designed to fit a diverse range of high speed aerospace and defense connector systems and backshells, GORE HDMI Cables for Aircraft are compatible with ARINC, MIL STD 389999 with size 8 contacts and more. Common commercial and military aircraft applications include:
- Digital video systems
- Electronic flight bag (EFB)
- Flight management systems
- Glass cockpits
- In-flight entertainment (IFE) systems
- Portable electronic devices
- Weather mapping
