You probably didn’t know it, but you’ve been buying garbage Ethernet cables your entire life. Fortunately, there’s finally a better option and it only costs as much as a used car.

This 12-meter network cable costs a whopping £6899, which converts to about $10,000. On a good note, if you live outside the UK and decide to order one you’ll get the sales tax knocked off the price and that will save you a couple thousand dollars.

It’s offered by the folks at AudioQuest, and they’ve got plenty of reasons why their cable is worth every penny of that jaw-dropping price tag. They’re made with solid, 100% silver conductors which “prevent strand interaction, a major source of cable distortion.” Those silver wires are wrapped in the finest high-density polyethylene insulation, ensuring  “critical signal-pair geometry while minimizing insulation-induced phase distortion.”

Electrical Connectors for Hermetically Sealed Applications
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Bel
Many hermetic chambers today require electrical pathways to provide internal equipment with power, data or signals, or to receive data and signals from equipment within the chamber. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Brad Taras from Cinch Connectivity Solutions explore the role that seals and connectors play in the performance of hermetic chambers. They examine the methodologies to determine hermetic seal leaks, the benefits of epoxy hermetic seals, and how Cinch Connectivity’s epoxy-based seals and hermetic connectors can add value to your next design.
