Macrovision, Inc.

PLEINFELD, GERMANY, (March 31, 2016) — In response to advancements in modern airborne digital networks and passenger demand, W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables. They carry more data greater than 5 meters for faster in-flight entertainment (IFE) content uploads and downloads. These cables provide reliable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits over longer distances. In addition, they support power management from 9-32V systems to ensure passengers can charge their devices quickly and easily.

GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables have a unique construction with approved aerospace materials that provide durable protection in the most demanding aerospace environments, including a wide range of temperatures for long service life. The high-density construction of these cables significantly reduces weight and diameter for improved installation. The small cable diameter increases flexibility with a tight bend radius for easy routing.

GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables complement Gore’s broad range of high-speed data cables, including Ethernet Cat5e and Cat6a, HDMI 2.0, high-performance quad, dual-gigabit, shielded twisted pair and fiber optics.

Typical applications for GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables include content loading, data transfer, digital video systems, IFE systems, portable electronic devices and power remote devices.

GORE® Aerospace USB 3.1 Cables will be on display at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany on April 5-7, Booth 3C20. For more information, visit, or contact a Gore applications specialist at
