ChipConnect Cable Assemblies

Development Partner for Future Generation Cable Assemblies

We are one of only two Intel-qualified suppliers offering these first generation cable assemblies (Intel OPA 100 Series) required for OPA and are also a development partner for future generation cable assembly designs for CPU processors with Intel. ChipConnect cable assemblies reduce system design costs by eliminating the need to use costlier lower-loss PCB materials and retimers. With these interconnects, system design is made easier by reducing the complexity of PCB laminates and routing.
