ETHERNET GRAPHITE

Performance Ethernet is designed specifically for the transmission of high definition digital audio

The Performance Ethernet cable is able to transmit high definition digital audio between networked Ethernet components and is ideal for HD audio streamer applications up to 24 bit/192kHz.  At QED we have identified that reducing jitter or timing errors within the digital signal makes for cleaner audio transmission and with Ethernet this is no different. With CAT 6 UTP specification and 250MHz bandwidth, the Performance Ethernet is more than equipped to handle the latest high definition digital audio.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

8/8 RJ45 gold plated connectors

Stranded 24AWG 99.999% OFC copper conductors and gold plated 8/8 RJ45 jack plugs to maintain low insertion loss figures throughout the life of the cable by minimising signal reflections and keeping contact resistances low

CAT 6 UTP specification

100Ω characteristic impedance

High bandwidth

Most ordinary patch cables are constructed to the Cat5e standard and are only specified for data rates up to 100MHz. The QED Performance Ethernet cable is an over-specified CAT6 UTP patch cable capable of data rates up to 250MHz - which gives it plenty of headroom when used in an HD Audio streamer application.


Suitable for 10GBase-T

IDEAL FOR HD AUDIO STREAMER APPLICATIONS

up to 24bit/192kHz


Asymmetric twist rates for reduced cross-talk

A polyethylene former is used to physically separate each twisted pair into its own compartment within the cable keeping the geometry extremely uniform. This further contributes to the elimination of cross-talk within the cable and maintains the tight 100 ohm characteristic impedance demanded by the Cat6 UTP standard.

OVERALL PERFORMANCE


Very Low Jitter

Jitter is the undesired deviation from true periodicity of an assumed periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. A cable displaying very low jitter has been measured at
typically 50ps.
