Pluggable I/O Cable Assemblies

Pluggable I/O Cable Assemblies

Supporting the latest high-speed standards, our high speed pluggable I/O copper cable assemblies are engineered for 25 Gbps and beyond. Our signal integrity (SI) and system architecture expertise allow us to provide one of the highest performing portfolios of 25 Gbps QSFP28 and SFP28 cable assemblies in the market. These cable assemblies support aggregate data rates of 25, 50, 100 and 200 Gbps. These cable assemblies are at the forefront of next-generation connectivity, meeting 100G Ethernet and InfiniBand Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) requirements. We offer custom cabling solutions and corresponding pluggable I/O cages and connectors.

QSFP+ Fine Wire 33AWG Cable Assemblies

TE has expanded the QSFP+ cable assembly product family to include options that solve a number of data communication cabling issues. In addition to the standard 30, 28 and 26AWG QSFP+ 10 Gbps TurboTwin product offering, TE offers QSFP+ assemblies with fine wire TurboTwin 33AWG 8-pair cable. This fine wire bulk cable satisfies the need for ultra-thin, light
weight and highly flexible passive cabling solutions in high density intra-rack applications.
