As modern technology evolves by leaps and bounds in applications and IoT connectivity, the demand of more sophisticated, faster, and reliable signal transmission grows along with it as well. Needless to say, such demand is in need of interconnect solutions with superior and faster performance. Anticipated this growing trend, Yamaichi Electronics has developed the High-Speed YFLEX® cable solution to support various interconnect applications across Automotive, Telecom, Datacenter, Medical, Industrial, and Multi-Media markets.
YFLEX® is Yamaichi patented high-speed FLEX cable assembly technology. It is cable of PCI Express Gen4.0, SATA Express, USB 3.1, HDMI ver.2.0., and 56Gbps transmission for Telecom and Datacenter applications. Yamaichi also developed complementary FLEX cable connector products such as the HF507 series with side-locking adapter and the HF513 ZIF type series to pair with YFLEX® to support our customers’ different design approaches.
YFLEX®’s layer material is consisted of LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) instead of the traditional PI (polyimide). Given LCP has lower Signal Loss behavior than PI, especially running at high frequency, YFLEX® offers better SI performance and impedance control over generic FLEX cables when transmitting high-speed signals. LCP material’s SI performance also do not deteriorate or change under environments with moisture like PI does; this advantage of LCP makes YFLEX® a far more ideal candidate to deploy under challenging operation surroundings.
In addition, YFLEX® employs special BUMP printing process instead of traditional via hole structure. BUMP printing process removes the need of via holes thus ensures stable thickness dimension, reliable signal transmission, and allows denser component layout.
With its solid SI performance and capability to support wide variety of signals, YFLEX® is perfect for UHD 4K/8K image processing applications such as surgical image recording in Medical field or ADAS system view camera connection in Automotive market. No matter what your design requirement seeks, Yamaichi is confident YFLEX® will meet the challenges set by our customers!
