The twelve-channel cable assemblies support signal transmission rates up to 12.5Gbit/s per channel, delivering an aggregate bandwidth of 150Gb/s and a throughput up to 55Gb/s per linear centimeter of panel length. The XLerate-12X Series CXP interface supports IEEE802.3ba and Infiniband industry standards.

The XLerate-12X CXP-to-CXP active optical cables are suitable for high-density signal transmission seen in critical operations within high-performance computing applications and data centers. The active optical cables are available in lengths of up to 100 meters and the hot pluggable cable connector interface allows for easy installation. The Optical Fiber Non-Conductive Plenum (OFNP) cable is fire-resistant and its helix construction allows for easy cable routing and bending within and in between cabinets. FCI offers these CXP-to-CXP active optical cables with a number of options, such as input equalization and angled cable exits.
