As passenger demand for quick and easy access to IFEC increases, aircraft IFEC systems need to provide faster data transmission over longer distances. W L Gore & Associates and Kontron, a global manufacturer of embedded computer modules, boards and systems, are working together to meet these growing demands.
Gore’s Ethernet cables are engineered to meet the increasing data demands of modern airborne digital networks. The company say coupling these cables with Kontron’s embedded computing avionic systems delivers reliable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits over longer distances.
“Our goal is to provide Kontron with interconnects that are lighter, smaller and more efficient to help their leading-edge connectivity systems perform at the optimum level,” said Adrian Milne, global product manager at Gore.
“Ecosystem collaboration is critical when developing next-generation solutions, and Gore’s innovative materials expertise provides an optimal interconnect solution for our high-data-rate systems,” said R J McLaren, avionics product manager at Kontron.
