Credo will conduct two demonstrations with Lorom. In addition to driving error-free 28G signals across standard Lorom Emaxx cables at lengths up to eight meters, the Credo 28G SerDes IP evaluation platform will be leveraged to demonstrate error-free transmission across Lorom’s light-weight and highly flexible three-meter and five-meter cables in both SFP and QSFP form factors.
Lorom’s bulk cable performance utilizes low-loss foamed dielectric, low surface roughness foils and proprietary manufacturing processes to achieve among the lowest insertion loss per meter in the industry. In addition to having this low insertion loss performance, Lorom’s well-balanced cables exhibit nominal mode conversion below 30dB. This further minimizes insertion loss and provides consistent pair-to-pair performance.
“The combination of Lorom’s advanced cabling technology and Credo’s industry leading SerDes technology enables signals to be pushed farther in length, across cables with smaller outer diameters, without the need for FEC,” said Henning Hansen, chief operating officer of The Lorom Group. “The small size, light weight and extreme malleability of these cables should have a profound impact on front-panel data center rack connectivity.”
