Flyover QSFP28 Cable Systems

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

flyover qsfp28

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.
