DDR cable assemblies from Gore

W. L. Gore & Associates announced an "innovation in high data rate cable assemblies" that promises to more than triple the reach of Double Data Rate (DDR) InfiniBand cables as well as reduce their size and weight for enhanced flexibility and ease of routing. GORE Extended Reach DDR Cable Assemblies utilize the patented self-equalizing GORE EYE-OPENER+ Conductor Technology combined with Q:Active ultrasmall, low-power analog semiconductors from Quellan to deliver exceptional signal fidelity over longer distances in the smallest cross-sectional area.

"These new cable assemblies promise to fill a reach void in the market between passive copper and optics at DDR signaling speeds," said Eric Gaver, business leader for Gore's advanced digital interconnects. "We're excited to work with Quellan, a leader in analog signal integrity devices, to provide this cost-effective cabling solution."

GORE Extended Reach DDR Cable Assemblies provide users with the architectural freedom to enable today's expansive cluster footprints within mega data centers. These small and lightweight cables reduce cable bundle size, the company said, allowing for increased system airflow and ease of routability and flexibility. In addition, they offer improved performance resulting from low-power consumption, low latency, reduced crosstalk and increased margins. This series of improvements lowers capital expenditures, reduces operating expenses, and increases freedom in designing or expanding existing data centers, the company explained.

Cable solutions include InfiniBand SDR, DDR and 10GbE (CX-4), all with Gore's GORE EYE-OPENER+ Conductor Technology at gauges ranging from 24 to 30 gauge at lengths ranging from 5m to 50m.
