Sumitomo Electric has developed Thunderbolt cable based on Intel
Corporation'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 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.
