Credo ships HiWire Active Electrical Cables

Credo announced the production availability of HiWire Active Electrical Cables (AEC).

The company says its AECs provide plug and play, deterministic, persistent in-rack and inter-rack connections at lower cost and lower power of alternative optical approaches. Additionally, the AEC family provides system level, in-cable speedshifting providing seamless connectivity of 50G PAM4 enabled switch ports to widely available 25G NRZ based servers.

Credo is showcasing the AEC product family at the China International Optical Expo (CIOE 2019) in Shenzhen, China, through September 7.

“Our Credo connectivity solutions are being widely deployed in cloud, service provider, and enterprise networks,” said Jeff Twombly, VP of Marketing and Business Development Credo. “The addition of our HiWire AECs allow system providers to move rapidly to 400G while striking a strategic balance with CapEx and OpEx.”

HiWire aims for standard Active Electrical Cables at 400G and up

A new HiWire Consortium has been established to pursue the standardization and certification of a new category of Active Electrical Cables (AEC).
