The innovative design of NovaRay™ combines extreme density and extreme performance, which is critical as system sizes decrease and speeds increase. The fully shielded differential pair design and two reliable points of contact contribute to the industry leading 4.0 Tbps aggregate data rate.

FEATURES

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
