Low-profile optical cable assemblies from Molex offer improved fiber management


CXP Optical Cable Assemblies ImageMolex's low-profile CXP optical 4.50mm round cable assemblies offer improved fiber management over traditional flat cables for connecting CXP transceivers. The CXP cable utilizes 24 fibers and industry standard MTP/MPO connectors, 12 transmit (TX) and 12 receive (RX), and 10 Gbps high bandwidth (OM3) fiber. This design meets the InfiniBand bandwidth requirements for CXP modules spaced up to 300.00m (984.25’).

Molex’s CXP optical cable assemblies are part of the iPass+ HSC CXP system, which is the latest addition to the existing iPass product family. The iPass Interconnect System offers connectors and cables that enable flexible speed compatibility for applications ranging from 1 to 10Gbps and is an ideal solution for the growing server/storage market. Molex provides a complete CXP solution with cable assemblies and loopbacks.
