NovaRay® I/O 112 GbPS PAM4 Panel Mount Cable System

NovaRay® I/O 112 GbPS PAM4 Panel Mount Cable System

NovaRay® I/O uses Flyover® cable technology to route up to 3,584 Gbps PAM4 aggregate data from the IC package to the panel and beyond.


Family Overview

NovaRay® I/O offers the highest aggregate data rate on the market, 3,584 Gbps PAM4, with a high-density cable-to-cable bulkhead panel connection. Flyover® cable technology routes data above lossy PCB to simplify board layout and extend signal reach, both inside and outside of the box. Passive electric external cables prevent a large thermal load at the panel and require no heat sinks, saving valuable panel space.
