Raychem USB 3.1 cable

TE Connectivity's Raychem USB 3.1 cable provides up to 10 Gb/s data rates

Powering the next generation of aerospace applications with full legacy USB 2.0 support and USB 3.1 power

09/20/2022

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors introduces its new Raychem USB 3.1 cable, increasing data rate speeds up to 10 Gb/s. The Raychem cable was designed to support commercial and military aerospace applications and supports USB 2.0 legacy applications. With double the bandwidth of USB 3.0, the USB 3.1 cable is specifically designed for eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing), UAM (urban air mobility) and UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) applications.

 

“Higher data rates are becoming a staple requirement for next generation aerospace platforms,” said Greg Shirk, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “We know how important it is for data to get to its destination quickly to keep aerospace vehicles in the air and critical data moving. That is why we designed the USB 3.1 cable to meet and exceed current industry expectations.”

 

TE’s USB 3.1 cable can withstand harsh environment temperatures ranging between -65˚C up to 200˚C. From IFE (in-flight entertainment) and data transfer to missile applications and avionics systems, the new cable helps reduce harnessing time and cost. Compared to industry-standard tape wrap constructions in the marketplace, TE’s construction implements the use of an extruded component and jacket which can lead to a more simplified termination.

 

The USB 3.1 cable is engineered for high-speed data rates, offering:

  • Temperature Range: -65 °C to +200°C
  • Flammability: meets the requirements of FAR part 25, Appendix F, Part 1 when tested in accordance with the 60-degree test 
  • Jacket tensile strength of 2000 psi minimum
  • Jacket elongation of 200% minimum
