HiWire SHIFT/LP SHIFT AECs Deliver plug and play connectivity between PAM4 ports and NRZ NICs with speed shifting and FEC termination in-cable.
HiWire SHIFT cables are commonly used in NIC to TOR and Spine/Leaf applications where a PAM4 port must be mated to a legacy NRZ port.
- Up to 5m length
- Up to 50% less power than optics
- Up to 50% lower cost than optics
- Up to 2.5x longer life than optics
- Up to 100x better MTBF than optics
Credo’s HiWire™ SHIFT Active Electrical Cable (SHIFT AEC) is a lower power, lower cost solution to DR4 to 4xDR1 transceiver solutions for PAM4 to NRZ conversion. Powered by Credo’s best-in-class signal processing technology, this Plug & Play cable provides connectivity between PAM4 and NRZ ports with speed shifting and FEC termination in-cable over thin copper cables without using any optical components.
Credo’s CAC4XXXX1D4P-A0-HW HiWire SHIFT AEC is designed for telecom and data center use. The 400G cable breaks out from one 400G (8x56G-PAM4) QSFP-DD end into four 100G (4x28G-NRZ) QSFP28 ends with built-in gearbox feature. The use and replacement of CAC4XXXX1D4P-A0-HW AEC is simple and straightforward as it adopts standard QSFP-DD type 2/QSFP28 form factors and complies to MSA specifications.
