High Speed Connector Development Trends and Key Points for Quality Certification

General Overview

With the rapid development of the IT industry, transfer quality, speed and application diversity have initiated a continued drive towards the development of faster transfer speeds. In order to enhance signal transfer encoding speed and shorten user waiting sessions. 1. Lowering package precision. 2. Providing full duplex transfer modes are both plausible ways to tackle the issue. In order to reach this goal, all individual components must be able to minimize signal decay, distortion and resistance towards interference.

Hence, the connector which acts as a bridge would also require an upgrade, due to the increasing role it plays in transmission quality and speed. The flow chart below shows the evolution of USB transmission speed from USB 1.0 to USB 3.1 Gen 2. Another important point to mention is the transmission mode which upgraded from half-duplex to full duplex.

ULTRA HD Premium™ Certification Sets New Standard for Video Display Industry

As a next-generation digital video technology, Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) is gradually supplanting HD video across the consumer electronics (CE) landscape. In our homes, at work, and on the go, UHD is now available in a wide range of products, including televisions, computer monitors, video cameras, and mobile devices. Content producers, video service providers, hardware manufacturers, and retailers are all promoting the transition to UHD. For content producers and service providers, UHD presents an opportunity to bring cinematic quality experiences to smaller screens. For hardware manufacturers and retailers, UHD can attract new customers and thereby accelerate sales. A leading expert noted that, “There is considerable industry interest in the potential for (UHD) to speed up the next replacement cycle among CE shoppers”.[1] Now that UHD products have passed the early-adopter stage and reached mass-market price points, UHD products are primed for rapid growth in 2016 and beyond.
