NAB Show is the world's largest event covering electronic media and
video/broadcast equipment produced by the National Association of
Broadcasters.
Sumitomo Electric will showcase three types of Thunderbolt cables (metal,
optical and thin) which are developed by incorporating its advanced electric
wire technology and high-speed data transmission technology into the technical
specifications for Thunderbolt technology provided by Intel Corporation. We
are looking forward to your visit to our booth location: SL14617, South Hall
Lower.

• Thunderbolt Cable
The Thunderbolt cable is developed by incorporating our advanced electric wire
technology and high-speed data transmission technology. This cable achieves
bidirectional data transfer at an ultra high rate of up to 10 Gbps; more than
20 times faster compared to the currently popular USB 2.0 data transfer
system, and twice as fast as a USB 3.0 type. The cable is well received for
good operability and product lineup. The cable comes in lengths of 0.3 m to
3.0 m and colors of black and white to best serve customers' needs.

• Optical Thunderbolt Cable
Sumitomo Electric has become the first company to receive Thunderbolt
certification from Intel Corporation for the optical Thunderbolt cable and
started the mass production in December 2012. (As of April 2013, only Sumitomo
Electric received the certification.) This cable comes in lengths of up to 30
m. Sumitomo Electric's special optical fiber will provide high bend
performance even when pinched by up to 180 degrees or tangled in knots.

• Thin Thunderbolt Cable
The thin Thunderbolt cable is 3.2 mm in diameter, which is 1.0 mm thinner than
the conventional cable, and provides highly reliable data transmission at a
high speed of 10 Gbps. This compact design makes it easy to carry the cable
with portable devices by winding it around them or packing in small pockets of
typical carrying cases.
