Gore and Kontron collaborate to meet passenger demands for faster access to in-flight entertainment on civil aircraft

As the passenger demand for quick and easy access to in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) increases, aircraft IFEC systems need to provide faster data transmission over longer distances. W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) and Kontron, a global manufacturer of embedded computer modules, boards and systems, are working together to successfully meet these growing demands.

GORE Ethernet Cables are engineered for the increasing data demands of modern airborne digital networks. These cables, coupled with Kontron's embedded computing avionic systems, deliver reliable signal integrity for high-speed data transmission up to 10 gigabits over longer distances. The lightweight construction and smaller gauge size of GORE Ethernet Cables in Kontron's system architecture also help to reduce weight on aircraft. Adrian Milne, Global Product Manager says, "Our goal is to provide Kontron with interconnects that are lighter, smaller, and more efficient to help their leading-edge connectivity systems perform at the optimum level."

RJ McLaren, Kontron Avionics Product Manager added, "Ecosystem collaboration is critical when developing next-generation solutions, and Gore's innovative materials expertise provides an optimal interconnect solution for our high data rate systems."
