Tyco Electronics launches a new family of Madison Cable brand InfiniTwist cables designed to outperform parallel-pair cable products currently available in the market in bend radius, flexibility and overall mechanical reliability.
Utilizing a twisted shielded-pair design, InfiniTwist cables improve cable management in high-density systems through a tighter bend radius that is less than 2.5X cable diameter — tested in accordance to SFF 8417 Multi Conductor Cable Flex Cycle Test Procedure. The cables exhibit virtually no pistoning of conductors or pairs — reducing commonly-known parallel-pair design termination issues. The twisted-pair feature increases flexibility and mechanical reliability over parallel pair, decreases time delay skew and improves mode conversion.
Available in constructions of 1 through 36 pairs and above, InfiniTwist cables utilize conductor sizes of 24 AWG through 32 AWG to meet the demands of multiple interconnect lengths. The cables can be manufactured in both 85 and 100 Ohm impedance and support transmission speeds up to 16 GHz and beyond.
The high-speed cables are well-suited for InfiniBand standard (SDR, DDR, QDR, and FDR – 1X, 4X,12X); 10G/40G/100G Ethernet standard (1X, 4X, 10X); SAS 6; and 12 Gb/s, SFP+, QSFP+, CXP, CR4, CR10, 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel standard applications — and other custom applications as specified by customer requests.
