Fischer Connectors has released new high-speed connectors and cable assemblies for Ultra High Definition (UHD) audio/video data transfer at 18 Gbps in demanding environments.
Stéphane Antonetti, Product Data Expert at Fischer Connectors, said, “The speed of our audio/video connectivity solutions, 18 Gbps, is equivalent to the HDMI 2.0 standard widely
used in 4K cinema projectors and UHD home TVs.
“As Fischer Connectors’ circular connectors are rugged by design, they combine the best of both worlds, providing design engineers with a versatile portfolio of high-speed, high-performance connectivity solutions for a wide range of harsh-environment applications.”
Fischer Connectors’ new UHD solutions are available in the flagship Fischer MiniMax and Fischer Core product lines with 10,000 mating cycles, 360° EMI protection, different sealing performances from IP68 to hermeticity and sterilisation capacities, as well as three locking mechanisms (push-pull, screw, quick-release).
Fischer MiniMax UHD connectors available in ‘size 08’ (12.9 mm diameter plug) and having a miniature, lightweight, compact, high-density layout with 19 contacts, thus ensuring high-quality data transmission for digital signals in demanding applications such as aerial imaging, especially in military operations for drones equipped with high-resolution cameras.
The connectors support UHD audio/video connectivity in scientific, industrial, instrumentation, test and measurement and medical applications with 4K camera devices, where Fischer Core connectors are widely used.
