Pluggable I/O Cable Assemblies

High-Speed Pluggable I/O Cable Assemblies

Supporting the latest high-speed standards, our high speed pluggable I/O copper cable assemblies are engineered for 56 Gbps and beyond. Our signal integrity (SI) and system architecture expertise allow us to provide one of the highest performing portfolios for QSFP28/56 and SFP28/56 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 32AWG Cable Assemblies

Ultra-thin and Highly Flexible

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 32AWG 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.
