High‐speed data technology and high‐frequency transmission

Highest speeds for maximum data throughput: Every year, the global data volume increases many times over. In order to handle these enormous amounts of data, high transmission speeds and a stable signal are essential.

  • Large data volumes and high data‐transfer rates

  • Optimal signal integrity

  • ODU connectors and cables are optimally matched and tested

  • Standard data technology and development of customised solutions

Constant signal integrity and versatile applications

ODU connector systems for high-speed data technology are based on our extensive know-how in the development and coordination of components. We simulate and develop all components to ensure optimal signal integrity. At the same time, our solutions are characterised by the following characteristics: robustness, vibration resistance and a high number of mating cycles.

This ideal combination makes our connector systems suitable for a wide variety of applications – whether as a standard version or a customised solution.

Available data transmission protocols

  • Ethernet/IP® (up to 10 Gbit/s)
  • USB® (up to 10 Gbit/s)
  • HDMI® (up to 48 Gbit/s)
  • DisplayPort® (up to 40 Gbit/s)
  • SPE / Automotive Ethernet (up to 10 Gbit/s)
  • and many more

Variable speeds and maximum reliability

Our system solutions for high-speed data transmission ensure differential signalling of the highest quality.

Professional execution of the cable assembly and high‐quality components have a major influence on the speeds that can actually be achieved. ODU creates simulations of the entire transmission chain and provides complex system solutions that achieve the desired performance – even under real‐world conditions.

  • Cables and cable assembly as a tested system solution
  • Development of exclusive and customized interfaces
  • Simulations and testing as early as the development phase

FAQ Data Technology

What advantages do ODU interface connectors offer over standard data technology interfaces?

Standard interfaces were designed for indoor use. ODU system solutions with data technology inserts, on the other hand, can provide extremely secure connections even in harsh environments. Our outstanding product quality also guarantees the usual high number of mating cycles.

Which transmission protocols can we map with ODU system solutions and what is the maximum channel length?

Ethernet: 100 m


USB® 2.0: 4 m
USB® 3.2 Gen 1 x X 5 GBit/s per Lane: 2 m
USB® 3.2 Gen 2 x X 10 Gbit/s per Lane: 1 m

HDMI®: 5 m

DisplayPort®: 5 m


100BASE-T1: 15 m

1000BASE-T1: 15 m Link Segment Type A, 40 m Link Segment Type B

Automotive Ethernet

100BASE-T1: 15 m

1000BASE-T1: 15 m

Why should you choose a system solution for data technology products?

The relevant technologies are designed as fully assembled data technology system solutions for the respective applications. To ensure a 100% error-free connection, the entire system solution should always be evaluated in terms of the required data technology. A connector can only meet the requirements for the customer’s application in combination with the right cable.

Which ODU connectors are available as data technology system solutions?

Data technology solutions are available for all main product series, including ODU MINI-SNAP®, ODU AMC®, and ODU-MAC®. With these series, the Ethernet, USB®, HDMI® and DisplayPort® protocols can be mapped respectively.

What else must be taken into account when ordering data technology assemblies as opposed to standard connections?

With the exception of Ethernet, data technology connections based on the ODU-MAC® Blue-Line are only sold assembled on both sides. This is due, among other things, to the fact that every data technology assembly undergoes RF inspection.

Can I see the documentation for the respective tests?

For all data technology assemblies, laboratory test reports are prepared which can also be requested by our customers.

These describe the tests performed and their results.

At ODU, are data technology assemblies subject to a minimum order quantity?

No. Like all ODU standard assemblies, there is no minimum order quantity for ODU data technology solutions, and length neutrality is also maintained. The only restriction here is the maximum possible cable length, which is limited by the transmission characteristics.
