- Digital interface - no need to convert digital data into analog and then digital again for processing, which will have a loss of data integrity.
- Small - thin serial cable will replace large and more expensive interfaces.
- Easy to use - no terminators, devices ID etc…
- Hot pluggable for plug and play applications
- Cheap - the high volum consumer market will achieve low-cost implementation.
- Daisy chain connection

Cable Plug Connector
The fully shielded connector will have six contacts. The contcat design creates a Hertzian stress (combination of cylindrical radius, normal force, base and surface material hardness) of 225,000 - 275,000 psi in the mating area. The connector plug termination can be made by crimp, insulation displacement (ICD), insulation piercing & soldering.
The cable consists of two twisted pairs (signal pair) & two power connectors. The signal pair carries the balanced differential data signal, while the power conductors carries the bus power (about 8~40 VDC).
The signal pair will have individual braid (60~65%) shield. The overall cable has a outer shield (90~95% braid copper wire over spiral wrap metallized polyester tape, with the metal to the outside)
The cable assembly consists of two identical plug connectors jointed by a cable (Maximum length is 4.5m). When a cable assembly plug is mated with a socket connector, there should be 1 mm (minimum) clearance between overmold on the assembly plug & the shield flange on the socket.
