Jan 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Sumitomo Electric Industries has commenced sample product shipment of a thin Thunderbolt cable that has an approximately 25 percent smaller outer diameter than the conventional Thunderbolt cable.
According to a release, this product is being displayed at Intel Corp.'s booth during the Consumer Electronics Show held by the Consumer Electronics Association in Las Vegas.
Sumitomo Electric said it has developed Thunderbolt cable based on Intel Corp.'s technical specifications. The Company launched its electrical Thunderbolt cable in April 2012 and started mass production of its optical Thunderbolt cable in December 2012. These products are receiving favorable reviews from the market.
The newly developed thin Thunderbolt cable is 3.2 mm in diameter, which is 1.0 mm thinner than the conventional cable, and provides data transmission at a high speed of 10 Gbps.
This compact design allows users to carry the cable with portable devices by winding it around them.
