This sub-specification of COBO (Consortium for On-Board Optics) defines the characteristics of COBO Compliance Boards (CCB), which are used for electrical and optical testing of COBO networking equipment. The CCB includes a Host Compliance Board (HCB) and a Module Compliance Board (MCB) which support 400GAUI-8 C2M interfaces.

The COBO connector system is ideal for on-board optics applications due to its flexibility, excellent signal integrity, and cost-effective design. It consists of a card-edge connector for the high-speed function and a one-piece z-axis connector for management interface and power contacts (modified Samtec UCC8 latching receptacle).

The high-speed card-edge connector is specified to support ×8 and ×16 channel requirements. The signal integrity (SI) performance of the connector system supports the COBO requirement of operation at 56 Gbps PAM4 signaling.

As we seek to go faster and faster in our systems, heat grows as does the noise from the cooling fans. It is because of this heat and noise, many companies are investigating or switching to submersible cooling (liquid immersion cooling) options. Over the last few years, submersib...
Scientists, researchers, and data analysts from academia, industry and government agencies will be center stage at SC19 next week in Denver. SC19 is the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis. Next-generation high-performance co...
Decisions, Decisions … I may be in the market for a new car in the near future. Unless you’ve got a strong preference (and most car buyers DO have a strong preference, IMO), choosing a vehicle is a series of trade-offs.  Fuel efficiency vs. horsepower. Functionality vs. appearanc...
I recently attended the Engineering Design Show in the UK, where one of the clear trends in evidence was the rise of power connectors for printed circuit boards (PCBs).  The reasons are pretty clear. New technology is making ever-greater demands for more power in smaller spaces. ...
In October, we shifted our focus to working on a few small and medium-sized projects that had been on the back-burner, and also chipped away at some technical debt that had been piling up, which is nerd speak for “picking up our toys.” This type of work isn’t always glamorous, bu...
