High speed jumper cable supports PAM4
At next week’s DesignCon 2022, Yamaichi and JAE will show the jointly developed high speed jumper able interconnect which supports the 112Gbits per second PAM4 signal.
It has been developed to meet the need for increased data transmission speeds for network equipment such as the routers and switches as the 5G network expands and the industry moves towards 6G technology. To fulfill this market demand, said Yamaichi, it has teamed up with JAE to developed the interconnect, combining both company’s design expertise.
As requirements for data transmission speed reach upper limits of existing PCB technologies, it is becoming more difficult to realise constant and reliable data transmission performance. To solve this problem, the two companies have jointly developed a jumper cable interconnect product which can perform stable data transmission at 112Gbits per second PAM4 signalling.
The interconnect has been designed with a compact connector in order to fit in high-density designs. It can be used for direct jumper cabling from the front panel pluggable I/O to host chip, or for internal chip to chip connection.
Yamaichi supplies high speed connectors for data networking market and JAE specialises in connector and cable harness products for a range of market segments including 5G data networking market.
The high speed jumper able interconnect will be demonstrated at the Yamaichi booth #960) at DesignCon2022 in Santa Clara, California, USA from 5 to 7 April.
