FCI has developed cabling solutions using ExaMAX connector technology that it claims will deliver up to 40Gb/s bandwidth capability.

The ExaMAX IO connector design combines a new contact interface design technology that the company says decreases terminal stub and ground-mode resonances, with an optimised cable termination that minimises impedance mismatch and signal loss.

The cable assemblies have the fl exibility to terminate standard twin-axial or ribbonised twinaxial cable constructions. These utilise multiple wafer counts as a basis for the cable construction and therefore various differential pair counts can be accommodated with superior cable bend radius and cable routing capability.
