Extreme Performance/Density

  • 112 Gbps PAM4 per channel
  • 4.0 Tbps aggregate data rate - 9 IEEE 400G channels
  • Innovative, fully shielded differential pair design enables:
    • Extremely low crosstalk (to 40 GHz)
    • Tight impedance control
    • Minimal variance in data rate as stack height increases
  • 112 differential pairs per square inch
  • Utilizes 40% less space than traditional arrays with the same data throughput
  • BGA attach to board for greater density and optimized trace breakout region

Multiple Points of Contact

  • Guaranteed two points of contact ensure a more reliable connection
  • Stub-free mating
  • Signals lost at the first point are caught in the second
  • Contributes to the 112 Gbps PAM4 rating
  • 92 Ω solution addresses both 85 Ω and 100 Ω applications
