Description: Samtec's long-reach chip-to-chip demonstration features a 7m ExaMax® Backplane Cable Assembly (EBCM Series). Using eSilicon SerDes, true long-reach capability is available for the most demanding system environments in next-generation 25 and 50 Tb/s switches. Designed for high-performance and flexibility, Samtec Eye Speed® Ultra Low Skew Twinax Cable enables Ethernet, Fiber Channel, 5G wireless infrastructure, and many other data center applications.

The eSilicon SerDes generates PRBS-31 56 Gbps PAM4 signals connected to Samtec ExaMax® Backplane connector (EBTF-RA Series) paddle cards via Samtec Bulls Eye® High-Performance Test System cable assembly (BE40A Series). The EBTF-RA Series paddle cards then connect through a 7m 30 AWG ExaMAX® Backplane Cable Assembly (ECBM Series). The signal path returns through another paddle card and BE40A Series Bull's Eye® cable assembly. The eSilicon SerDes then measures signal eye heights, bit error and eye patterns. The result is nearly error free: even pre-FEC! Expanding the bounds of 56 Gbps PAM4 operation, the 7m ExaMAX® Backplane Cable Assembly contributes less than 30 dB of insertion loss to the signal path.
