Molex continues to make strong efforts in developing leading-edge technologies for high-speed data networking. Thanks to decades of knowledge and advanced, automated manufacturing, Molex is now offering a comprehensive portfolio of 112 Gbps solutions, which feature highly reliable technologies essential for meeting future speed demands and expanding capacity. As more data is generated and infrastructure moves to the cloud, Molex I/O and backplane cabling solutions support faster processing in high-performance computing and data center equipment. Molex is aggressively developing new and faster solutions to support these evolving needs. While the move to 112 Gbps has been a challenge for the overall industry, Molex has innovative solutions that perform at peak speeds in the densest footprints. The solutions not only meet 112 Gbps requirements, but they support future data rate speeds without reconfiguring basic networks.
“Data centers must evolve to meet the rising demand for faster data rates. Molex delivers highly scalable technologies equipped with advanced features to achieve the speed, signal integrity, EMI containment and thermal efficiencies they need to ramp up to next-generation equipment and networking platforms,” said David Brunker, Molex technical fellow, who serves on the DesignCon 2019 Technical Program Committee.
In data centers and telecom infrastructure, 56 Gbps and 112 Gbps PAM-4 speeds are some of the latest developments in serial data signal formats. Implementation of high data rate protocols requires a clean channel with low signal-to-noise ratios. Molex has a portfolio of five different solutions that are capable of reaching speeds up to 112 Gbps. These product lines include:
- Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable Double Density (QSFP-DD) System
- BiPass I/O and Backplane Cable Assemblies
- NearStack High-Speed Connector System and Cable Jumper Assemblies
- Mirror Mezz High-Speed System
- Impulse Backplane Connector and Cabling System
Come speak with industry experts at DesignCon 2019, in Santa Clara, Calif., where Molex will be showing these leading technologies for high-density channels among several other live demosin booth 631.
In addition to the booth demos, Molex will lead a technical session, “Exploring 56/112 Gbps Copper Interconnect Metrics Comparing Classic Methods with COM” on January 30th at 2:00 p.m. in Ballroom C. Molex engineers will present a study that shows full channel assessments using Classic and COM tools with a map of their performance intersection. These performance studies will be conducted at 56 Gbps and 112 Gbps PAM-4 data rates.
