100G QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper Cable Assemblies, 9Q Series

The new 3M™ 100G QSFP28 Direct Attach Copper Cable Assemblies, 9Q Series are passive copper cable assemblies which utilize 3M Twin Axial Cable technology to create a highly-flexible, foldable, high-performance solution with bandwidths up to 100 Gbps to connect servers, switches, storage and other high-speed equipment.

The unique 3M core cable technology allows 3M cable assemblies to be low profile and lightweight while virtually eliminating high-frequency resonance, allowing the cable to fold and bend with minimal to no impact on performance. The cable has a very small bend radius and a low profile which enables efficient routing in tight spaces. The flat, thin profile allows cables to be stacked to create tighter cable bundles, helping to minimize obstructions to airflow.

3M's copper cable assemblies for QSFP28 applications are cost-effective I/O solutions offering excellent routability, low power and low latency. The cable assemblies also deliver data bandwidth up to 100 Gbps for lengths up to 2 meters with 30 AWG and from 2 to 4 meters with 26 AWG.
