THine Announces Yamaichi Electronics’ Development of Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) Cable 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 Yamaichi Electronics Co., Ltd. *1 will deliver samples of FPC cable that provides 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, and high-speed transmission as quadruple as V-by-One® HS will be possible according to the specification.

Yamaichi has developed a high-speed-transmission FPC cable “YFCS Series” that provides potential compliance with V-by-One® US specification. Delivery of samples of “YFCS Series” will be started and commercialization is planned in 2018.

“Since 'YFCS Series' is based on FPC board technology, it has amount of loss and frequency characteristics different from those of flexible flat cables, and choices of cables for customers using V-by-One® US may increase,” says Yasuhiro Takada, CEO of THine Electronics.

*1 Yamaichi Electronics Co., Ltd.
A leading manufacturer of semiconductor inspection sockets. Main products cover semiconductor inspection IC sockets, connectors, flexible printed circuit board, and optical multi-layer thin-film filters.
