THine Announces Hirose Electric’s Development of Connector for THine’s Next-Generation High-Speed Interface Specification, V-by-One® US

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed serial interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, has been collaborating with several partners in development of transmission lines for THine’s next-generation high-speed interface specification for 4K and 8K video images, V-by-One® US, and Hirose Electric Co., Ltd. *1 will deliver connectors that provide potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification.

THine has established V-by-One® US specification as a next-generation high-speed interface technology that follows THine’s high-speed interface technology V-by-One® HS, which is now used as interface in most of 4K televisions in the world as de facto standard. V-by-One® US specification defines high-speed transmission rate of 16Gbps per lane at the maximum (16,000,000,000 bits per second), and high-speed transmission as quadruple as V-by-One® HS will be possible according to the specification.

Hirose has confirmed that its 51-core connector of FX16 Series M2 Type provides potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification. FX16 Series M2 Type has high reliability adapted for flexible flat cables that have advantages in reduction in EMI.

“Since FX16 Series has been widely adopted as one of connectors for V-by-One® HS, customers will be able to easily consider transmission lines inside a television while technology transition is made from V-by-One® HS to V-by-One® US,” says Yasuhiro Takada, CEO of THine.
