FCI—manufacturer of connectors and interconnect systems—has developed a CXP-to-CXP 12X connection option to complement its line of XLerate-12X Series active optical cable assemblies. The 12-channel cable assemblies support signal transmission rates up to 12.5 Gbps per channel, delivering an aggregate bandwidth of 150 Gbps and a throughput up to 55 Gbps per linear centimeter of panel length. The XLerate-12X Series CXP interface supports the IEEE 802.3ba and Infiniband standards. The XLerate-12X CXP-to-CXP active optical cables are well suited for high-density signal transmission seen in critical operations within high-performance computing applications and data centers. The active optical cables are available in lengths of up to 100 meters and the hot pluggable cable connector interface allows for easy installation. The OFNP (optical fiber non-conductive plenum) cable is fire-resistant and its helix construction allows for easy cable routing and bending within and between cabinets. FCI offers these CXP-to-CXP active optical cables with a number of options, such as input equalization and angled cable exits. FCI offers a complete portfolio of active optical cables and transceivers, as well as passive copper elements. FCI's core I/O offerings of mini-SAS, SFP+, QSFP+, mini-SAS HD, DensiShield and CXP cable assemblies address signal requirements for Infiniband, 10GBase-CX4 Ethernet, IEEE 802.3 and SAS standard protocols used in connectivity to server, storage, telecom, and enterprise applications.
