Thunderbolt - Light Peak Cables
One Cable to rule them all, One Cable to find them, One Cable to bring them all and in the light bind them.

Thunderbolt-Light Peak is a new high-speed optical/electrical composit cable technology designed to connect electronic devices to each other. It has the capability to deliver high bandwidth, starting at 10 Gbps, with the potential to scale to 100 Gbps. It is intended as a single universal replacement for current buses such as SCSI, SATA, USB, FireWire, and HDMI. Thunderbolt-Light Peak is much faster, longer ranged, smaller, and more flexible in terms of protocol support. In short it is the universal data cable.

Whilst The-Cable-Store.com is a leader in Hi-Tech cable development & distribution there is no current affilliation or license agreement between The-Cable-Store.com and Intel Corporation.

Thunderbolt-Light Peak can send and receive data at 10 billion bits per second. That is a 1 with ten zeros after it. If you had $10 billion dollars in single dollar bills and piled them on top of each other it would form a stack about 700 miles high.

The optical fibers that will eventually be used in Thunderbolt-Light Peak have a diameter of 125 microns, about the width of a human hair. This thin optical fiber will enable Thuderbolt-Light Peak to transfer data over very thin, flexible cables.

Thunderbolt-Light Peak also has the ability to run multiple protocols simultaneously over a single cable, enabling the technology to connect devices such as docking stations, displays, disk drives, and more. A simple analogy is it is like loading up many cars onto a high-speed bullet train.

Electrical wires generate electric fields around them when electricity flows through. These electric fields hamper the speed at which signals can be passed down the wires as well as the length of the wires. Photons don’t have this problem, thus with Thunderbolt-Light Peak one could have thin, flexible optical cables that are up to 100 meters long.
