Flyover QSFP28 Cable Systems

Direct attach flyover QSFP28 cable assemblies fly critical high-speed signals over the PCB for improved and extended signal integrity.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

Samtec’s Flyover QSFP Systems provide improved signal integrity and architectural flexibility by flying critical high-speed signals over lossy PCB materials and directly to the panel via ultra low skew twinax cable. The ultra-high-density design includes sideband signaling via press-fit contacts to help increase airflow, and a multitude of “End 2” options allow for maximum design flexibility.

FEATURES

Flyover QSFP

  • 4 channels (x4 bidirectional, 8 differential pairs)
  • ~100 Gbps NRZ aggregate (~200 Gbps PAM4)
  • Compatible with all QSFP assemblies

Double Density Flyover QSFP

  • 8 channels (x8 bidirectional, 16 differential pairs)
  • ~200 Gbps NRZ aggregate (~400 Gbps PAM4)
  • Belly-to-Belly mating for maximum density
  • Backward compatible with QSFP modules
  • Localized press-fit control and power contacts eliminate the need for a secondary cable and connector
  • Sideband signals are routed through press-fit contacts for increased airflow
  • One or two rows of contacts directly soldered to the cable
  • Improved signal integrity by eliminating transition board and its variability
  • Achieves tighter tolerances

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
  • Samtec's Flyover Systems

Samtec’s flyover designs provide end option flexibility to create a high-speed application specific solution to meet next gen speeds. Flyover QSFP28 has many End 2 options, including:

A key component of any high-speed signal path is the interconnect.  Design engineers must identify the right connector (or connectors) and the best performance for the application. At 56 Gbps PAM4 data rates (and higher), connector selection becomes more challenging. Interconnect...

Demand For High Data Rate As the need for bandwidth continues to increase, so does the need for higher data rates within a system. What was once one to three Gbps, then moved to 4 to 8 Gbps, and now we are approaching 28 Gbps and looking forward to 56 G. This trend was recently [...
