Demo will utilize Molex zQSFP+™ cable assembly and zQSFP+ SMT connector interface
LISLE, IL – January 22, 2015–Molex Incorporated and Credo Semiconductor, Milpitas, CA, announced they will be demonstrating 50 Gbps NRZ live serial traffic at the upcoming DesignCon 2015, to be held Jan. 27-30 in Santa Clara, Calif. The demonstration will take place in Molex booth 619. The companies will use a high speed copper cable to demonstrate, for the first time, 50 Gbps NRZ live serial traffic on the zQSFP+™ form factor.
“This demonstration will highlight the feasibility of running extremely high, next-generation data rates, even on form factors that are already in use,” said Joe Dambach, product manager, Molex.
Credo will supply transmitting and receiving electronics and will drive a cable assembly using a 50 Gbps, NRZ encoded data stream, demonstrating this new level of performance at acceptable BER across existing interconnects. The demo will use a Molex zQSFP+ cable assembly and a zQSFP+ SMT connector interface.
