Twin Axial Cables

The 3M™ internal twin axial ribbon cable SL8800 series is an ultra low profile, high speed, high signal density cable

Image of 3M's Twin Axial CablesCurrently available in four-channel 100 Ω 30 AWG versions, 3M SL8800 series cable is the optimum solution for space-constrained systems. This cable is unjacketed, extremely thin, very flexible and can even be folded with minimal loss or performance impact. Some high density offerings sacrifice performance to achieve density. For example, flex circuits are often used for tight packaging requirements, but flex circuitry can be cost prohibitive and can have limited bandwidth. SL8800 series cable can route along the sides of cabinets and through narrow openings in densely packaged equipment with little to no effect on performance.

SL8800 cable series is a longitudinally shielded cable construction and is made to exacting tolerances. The cable suffers little to no resonance or "suck out" where traditionally spiral wrapped twin axial cables exhibit an enormous loss of signal at a particular range of frequency. The cable is also low skew, and the ribbon construction allows customers to further control any skew that can sometimes be introduced when trying to manage individual channels. This is especially critical at speeds beyond10 Gbps. High speed applications continue to demand more performance out of the cables, and the SL8800 series cable will deliver that performance for years to come.
