TE Connectivity’s Madison Cable brand InfiniTwist cable was recently honored with a 2012 Innovation Award from EDN China, a premier publication and website for China’s electronics design community. The cable was named “Best Product” in its passive components and sensors award category.
The InfiniTwist cable is TE’s latest solution for high-density systems that require fast data transfers and simplified cable management. Its design moves data at high speeds of 16 Gbps and beyond and is extremely flexible for easy cable routing. Additionally, the InfiniTwist family of products has a much smaller bend radius than most similar high-speed cables, increasing its ability to twist and weave in and out of complicated racks.
“The product name, InfiniTwist, says it all. The cable can transfer data at fast speeds while being able to twist in and out of complicated system racks—something that our customers truly value,” said Brian Morissette, Global Product Manager. “This design allows the cables to be used in more demanding applications while still offering exceptional electrical performance.”
Using a twisted shielded pair design, the InfiniTwist high-speed cable out-performs most parallel pair designs in bend radius, flexibility, reliability, time delay skew and mode conversion (SCD21). Tested to accepted industry standards (SFF 8417), the product can withstand a bend radius of 2.5x the cable diameter and still deliver electrical performance that is superior to standard parallel pair designs. Additionally, the InfiniTwist cable also dramatically reduces termination issues associated with pistoning, is inherently balanced, and provides better mechanical reliability than current parallel pair products.
Target product applications include servers, storage equipment, routers, switches and other data communication equipment.
