TE Connectivity ChipConnect Cable Assemblies

ChipConnect cable assemblies

TE Connectivity’s (TE) ChipConnect internal faceplate-to-processor cable assemblies are designed for Intel Omni-Path Architecture (OPA), which can directly transmit signals from the processor to the faceplate. ChipConnect cable assemblies mate directly with LGA 3647 sockets at the processor and Intel Omni-Path Internal Faceplate Transition (IFT) connector at the faceplate for 25 Gbps speeds.

These cable assemblies reduce system design costs by eliminating the need to use costlier, lower-loss printed circuit board (PCB) materials. System design is made easier by reducing the complexity of PCB laminates and routing, as well as retimers.

Internal Faceplate-to-Processor Cable Assemblies for Intel® Omni-Path Architecture 100 Series
