The conductor in this cable is a solid core OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper core surrounded by multiple bunch-stranded ‘satellite’ conductors of high purity OCC copper. The ‘speed’ characteristic of analogue cables is determined primarily by the dielectric performance of the insulator applied around the conductor, Hyper’s conductors are encapsulated within a PEF (Foamed Polyethylene) dielectric, with excellent immunity to interference and noise. Termination is via Atlas' wide-band, low-mass solder-free Ultra connectors – the fewer discontinuities in the signal path, the lower the level of signal degradation and the better the performance.
Normally screened cables suffer from screen distortion when they are prepared for production. (If you've ever wired a plug or connector which uses a screened cable, you've done this yourself, cutting back and probably twisting the screening braid for termination). This distortion of the screen has a measurable impact, effectively changing the impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.
Atlas' ‘dd’ configuration is based on a simplified version of the techniques they developed for their top-of-the-range Mavros and Asimi interconnects. Twin symmetrical drain wires (each attached to 180° segments of the plug) are inserted between a 100% copper/Mylar™ foil and screen. The unique dd system connects the screen effectively to the cable return/plug interface, meaning the cable can be terminated without distorting, twisting or mechanically stressing the precision-laid screen. The benefits are in maintaining a consistent low impedance load to the plug, and a total 360° screening against noise and signal loss caused by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference).
