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

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.

FEATURES

Features

  • Incredibly slim 7.6 mm width
  • High-density 2-row design
  • 8 and 16 differential pair configurations
  • 34 AWG, 100 Ω Eye Speed® ultra low skew twinax cable
  • Mating board level socket (ARF6 Series) features standard rugged weld tabs for increased stability on the PCB
  • Rugged metal latching and shielding
  • Right-angle orientation in development

Direct Attach

  • Two rows of high-density contacts directly soldered to the cable
  • Improved signal integrity by eliminating transition board and its variability
  • Achieves tighter tolerances

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
