Data Sheet: GORE® High Speed Data Cables for XAUI RapidIO™ Protocol in Traditional Space Applications
Data Sheets, English
As space exploration continues to evolve, the industry’s critical communication systems require cables that keep up with ever-increasing data transmission speeds. With decades of proven performance, W. L. Gore & Associates’ GORE® High Speed Data Cables for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol in traditional space applications answer the call. They offer reliable high-speed data transmission with ultra-low skew to ensure the success of every mission.
Cable Performance and Specifications
While high-speed data cables are a vital component of electrical systems on spacecraft, they’re not all made the same. They must deliver dependable performance over extended distances and meet strict industry requirements, as well as be able to handle harsh aerospace conditions. To ensure successful missions, Gore’s cables for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol are constructed with our unique materials that provide durable protection against challenging environments, such as:
- Extreme temperatures, with a range of -55°C to +150°C
- Radiation exposure resistance of (MRad) 200+
GORE High Speed Data Cables for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol in traditional space applications also transmit signals and data quickly – and without failure. With ultra-low skew up to 6 GHz, Gore’s shielded parallel pairs reliably transfer up to 12 Gbps of data for the duration of the mission at link distances up to 30 feet (7 meters) per lane. No matter where a spacecraft is headed, everyone on-board and on the ground will be able to maintain consistent communication to carry out the mission.
Meeting Rigorous Standards for Space Applications
Gore’s high-speed data cables are backed by decades of proven performance, with a failure-free success rate of 100% in hundreds of global spaceflight programs – even the 1969 moon landing. What’s more, all of our products are tested and qualified to ensure their unwavering performance. For one, GORE High Speed Data Cables for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol meet IEEE 802.3 10G-BASECX4 and ASTM-E595. Additionally, Gore’s unique Twinax technology meets the following strict industry requirements:
- IEEE 802.3 10G-BASE-CX4 for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol
- ASTM-E595 for outgassing
Thanks to their compliance, GORE High Speed Data Cables for XAUI RapidIO™ protocol are ideal for a wide range of traditional low-mass, high-density space applications, including the following:
- Command and data handling (C&DH)
- Communications systems
