Volex will Offer Active Copper Cables with Spectra7's GC1122 GaugeChanger™ Chips

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- (TSXV:SEV) (OTCQB:SPVNF) Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. ("Spectra7" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, today announced that Volex will support next generation 800Gbps, 400Gbps, 200Gbps and 100Gbps Active Copper Cable (ACC) interconnects using Spectra7's new GC1122 GaugeChanger™ chips.

"Spectra7 has produced a compelling solution for 112G PAM4 signaling to address the dramatically increasing power and cost of data center interconnects," said Alan Huang, Sr Product Manager, Data Center Products at Volex. "We are seeing significant interest from hyperscale customers for 800 Gbps ACCs with Spectra7 technology and are pleased to be working with them."

"We are thrilled to have Volex as a collaborator for our 800Gbps GaugeChanger™ technology," said Spectra7 CEO Raouf Halim. "They are an aggressive and proven high quality and high volume player in the hyperscale interconnect market."

The GC1122 is the latest addition to the GaugeChanger™ product line and extends the data rate from 56 to 112Gbps per lane. Since the GC1122 is analog and highly linear, dynamics such as line rate adjustment, multi-level signaling, intermittent line silence, transmit pre-emphasis or amplitude adjustment and receiver adaptivity are fully preserved.

GaugeChanger™ is an innovative technology that allows copper to extend much longer lengths without the cost and power penalty of optics or DSP based retimed copper solutions. It works equally well at 25 Gbps NRZ, 50 Gbps PAM-4 and 100 Gbps PAM-4 enabling new connector standards of 100, 200, 400 and 800 Gbps.
