Analog semiconductor products provider Spectra7 Microsystems announced that interconnect solutions supplier Foxconn Interconnect Technology will support next-generation 800Gbps Active Copper Cable interconnects with Spectra7’s new GC1122 solution. The GC1122 is the latest addition to the GaugeChanger product line. It allows extending the data rate from 56Gbps to 112Gbps per lane.
From 56Gbps to 112Gbps per lane
The GC1122 is analog and highly linear, thus it preserves line rate adjustment, multi-level signaling, intermittent line silence, transmit pre-emphasis or amplitude adjustment, and receiver adaptivity. GaugeChanger allows copper to extend much longer lengths without the cost and power penalty of optics. Raouf Halim, CEO, Spectra7 said,
“We’re extremely proud to be working closely with such a major interconnect supplier to the data center market on 800Gbps ACCs using our GaugeChanger technology. The joint collaboration with Foxconn Interconnect Technology is a major milestone in the development of our 800Gbps data center technology.”
