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 arf6 mated traces flipped

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.
