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 He Hui Electronics Limited Company*1, one of THine’s partners, has completed development of flexible flat cable that complies with V-by-One® US specification. He Hui Electronics Limited Company will also start delivery of its flexible flat cable samples that complies 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. In order to accomplish transmission lines for 8K video images by V-by-One® US while maintaining the number of transmission lines for transmission of 4K video images by V-by-One® HS, THine has been collaborating in development of transmission lines with several harness, connector, and material manufacturers who agree to standardization of V-by-One® US technology.
He Hui Electronics Limited Company delivers its flexible flat cables for LVDS and V-by-One® HS interface. Now, He Hui Electronics Limited Company has successfully developed its new flexible flat cable, “LHHS-8k” that complies with V-by-One® US specification and also is going to start mass production of “HLLS-8k” in November 2018.
“While THine has start delivering evaluation samples of ASSPs*2 incorporating V-by-One® US technology”, says Yasuhiro Takada, President and CEO of THine Electronics, “THine would like to welcome provision of flexible flat cables that complies with V-by-One® US specification at this timing. Users of V-by-One® US can select the most optimal cables among various transmission lines that complies with V-by-One® US.
As 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games are approaching, THine will continue to expand collaboration with harness, connector, and material manufacturers who agree to standardization of V-by-One® US technology, and will propose low-cost 4K and 8K video image transmission systems by V-by-One® US. THine aims to contribute to customers and innovation of video image market as a leading company of high-speed interface technology.”
