RUBI Measures -0.76dB @1GHz for 1m of cable. Aerated (expanded) PTFE insulation ensures low capacitance. 4μm thick silver-plated copper conductors improve conductivity along the skin of the conductor where virtually all the current will be. (Skin Effect) Electropolished conductors give an ultra-smooth surface that reduces signal reflection and loss, much like how traversing on a level road is easier than a rocky one. This effectively would improve phase noise, jitter, and bit interpretation.
Very low noise
In most USB cables noise from the power cable can cross into the twisted-pair data cable. The voltage swing of USB data is about 500 millivolts, while the radiated noise of the power cable can reach up to 200 millivolts, potentially polluting 40% of the data signal. In comparison, the shielded power cable in RUBI+ reduces cross-talk noise down up to 10x. For better performance, upgrading to a shielded Star-Quad power cable cuts broadband noise to 200x, for only $7. Furthermore, the Data Lines are double-shielded against EMI. Noise can create distortions in the time domain, which may affect real-time digital performance.
The data bus is manufactured in a facility with more than a decade of experience in aerospace and military cables.
RUBI comes with Ruby Red sleeving and White heat shrink. You may choose to change sleeving and heat shrink with our variety of colors. 3μ Gold-plated connectors ensure great contact longevity and a premium aesthetic. Every cable is inspected physically, (Solder joints) electrically (Impedance, loss) and sonically as part of quality control.
