AcceleRate® Slim Body Direct Attach Cable Assemblies

AcceleRate® Slim Body 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.
