AcceleRate® Slim Direct Attach Cable Assemblies

AcceleRate® Slim Direct Attach Cable Assemblies

AcceleRate® is the industry's slimmest cable system with direct attach technology and ultra-low skew twinax cable for 56 Gbps PAM4 speeds.


Family Overview

arc6 level 2

AcceleRate® features an extremely slim 7.6 mm width and Eye Speed® ultra-low skew twinax cable with direct attach to the contacts. This eliminates the need and variability of a transition card for improved signal integrity.

The cable system also supports Samtec's Flyover® technology to fly data over lossy PCB, simplifying board layout and extending signal reach.

Ultra Low Skew Twinax

Samtec’s proprietary co-extruded, low loss, twinax cable technology eliminates the performance limitations and inconsistencies of individually extruded dielectric twinax cabling, improving signal integrity, bandwidth and reach.

  • Ideal for 28-56+ Gbps applications
  • Tight coupling between signal conductors
  • Ultra low skew twinax < 3.5 ps/meter

Cable Management

Using ultra-low skew twinax cable to route signals over the board is a key performance enabler as signal reach and integrity needs continue to become ever more important in high-speed applications. Samtec works with system architects in the early stages of design to create solutions for cable management with even distribution of thermal load.

As the demand for higher frequencies and wider bandwidths continue their relentless march upward, RF connectors need to keep up and even exceed this demand. Mating the RF connector to a PCB or substrate requires careful consideration of several factors to get the full performance...
VITA 66 has been around for some years now. What goes into this standard continues to expand. VITA 66 is an evolution to increase your options inside the existing VITA 46 (VPX) market space. Samtec is pleased to announce the addition of our VITA 66 Landing Page. We are designed i...
In this video from DesignCon 2022, Keysight’s Mike Resso refers to 224 Gbps as a “blindingly fast speed.” Ten years from now, when 224 is old-hat and commonplace, we will look back at that statement and smile at how far we’ve come since those technologically backward, archaic day...
If you need a connector and you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, where on the Internet do you go first? You go to some sort of search engine, whether it be Google, Octopart, Digikey, or an on-site search like the one on Samtec.com. We’ve been working on several upgrade...
I recently attended the New York International Auto Show. While I was mesmerized by the new Corvette, the Huracán STO, and the GT-R, in reality I am thinking about updating my WRX. Whatever the budget, high-performance cars are high-precision engineered solutions using state-of-t...
