FCI introduces its EyeMax 4X and 12X high-speed serial I/O link as part of its cable assembly program. The system provides high-speed, serial copper links for industry-standard applications that include linking servers, storage, computers, switches and other data network or communications devices. The mating interface used in these cable and connector products has been selected as the external I/O copper link for industry standards including Infiniband, 10G Fibre Channel, 10G Base-CX4 Ethernet and SFF-8470 for Serial ATA or Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS). The cable assemblies enable high-speed data transfers at > 2.5 Gb/s per link/channel for cable lengths up to 10 meters. This cable technology offers < 4 percent cross-talk performance, greater bandwidth and optimal electrical performance to support switched fabric link capabilities and scalability within and between system hardware applications.
