Buyer’s Guide 2012 Update: Electrical/Electronic Components Miniaturised round cable transmits high-resolution image data
Leoni has developed a round endoscope cable with an outer diameter of 0.52 mm for the world’s smallest image sensor. The high flexibility of this miniature cable helps make endoscopic examinations as comfortable as possible for the patient. The cable transmits high-resolution image data.

The endoscopic cable developed by Leoni’s Healthcare business unit for the Israeli company Medigus ensures secure, interference-free data transmission between a 0.66 x 0.66-mm CMOS sensor and an image receiver. Besides its tiny overall diameter, this cable, which consists of four shielded wires, is characterised by high levels of signal integrity, flexibility and robustness.
The ease with which this and other miniaturised endoscope cables from Leoni can be assembled makes them ideal for use in disposable videoscopes.
Steam-sterilisable for repeated use
Owing to their ability to resist temperatures up to 200°C, endoscope cables from Leoni can be steam-sterilised as often as a thousand times for many repeated uses.
Leoni develops and manufactures custom miniature round cables specifically to connect miniaturised CMOS or CCD camera sensors in videoscopes. In applications for which other cables are too large, these tiny cables guarantee the concise transmission of everything that appears in front of the camera lens. They offer medical staff the robustness and flexibility in all directions that are both so important for reliability in diagnostic and surgical procedures. And for the patient’s benefit, the round configuration of the cable and its minimal surface area minimise unpleasant friction against the walls of organs and blood vessels.
