TE Cable Assemblies Minimize Cost, Speed Time to Market for Virtual Reality Startups

HARRISBURG, Pa. – November 16, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, today announced a line of virtual reality (VR) cable assemblies that speed time to market and offer superior performance compared to other solutions in the market. TE’s cable assemblies for VR applications enable VR solution providers to get to market faster with a proven platform design that can be easily and quickly modified to address their needs. TE can provide the entire cable assembly and high-speed receptacle, or just the plug modules if the cable is sourced from another supplier. The low-profile receptacle saves valuable printed control board (PCB) space in the headset, while the use of equalizers within the connectors on the cable assembly extends the reach of thin cable, keeping cable weight low.
