Based on Intel’s Thunderbolt technology, the new cable, developed by Sumitomo Electric in April 2012, enables long-distance data transmission up to 30 m to connect Thunderbolt devices together. The cables are robust and durable for daily use and offer high bending performance, even when pinched up to 180° or tangled in knots. They are the same diameter as conventional metal cables and handle just the same.

All Thunderbolt products must undergo a certification process to ensure optimal operation and end-user experience. Officially certified products provide reliable data transmission at a high speed of 10 Gb/s.
