Description: Samtec's NovaRay™ Cable Assembly (NVAC Series) offers extreme density while enabling 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. In combination with a ExaMax® Backplane Cable Assembly, the traditional backplane architecture is retained, but with higher performance targets and lower PCB complexity.

This demo partners with Xilinx to exhibit long reach SERDES generating 31 bit PRBS data at 112 Gbps PAM4. Signals travel from Samtec's NovaRay™ Terminal (NVAM-C Series) to ExaMax® Backplane Socket (EBCF-RA Series) using a 34 AWG Eye Speed® Ultra Low Skew Twinax Cable. This then mates via a Panel Retention Bracket (EBCB Series) to a 1 meter, 30 AWG ExaMax® Backplane Cable Assembly (EBCM Series), passing directly through a now lower-cost and lower-complexity backplane.

The return path of the channel repeats itself back to the Xilinx test chip which processes the data to display BER performance.
