Spectra7 and BizLink to Demonstrate 100/200G Data Center Interconnects at DesignCon

Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. (TSX:SEV) ("Spectra7" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high-performance analog semiconductor products for broadband connectivity markets, announced that it will be partnering with BizLink International Corp. to demonstrate 100 and 200G signaling over a 7m 28AWG QSFP Active Copper Cable (ACC). Spectra7 and BizLink will be demonstrating the technology at the DesignCon 2019 show at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley from January 30-31.

"We are excited to be working with Spectra7 on showcasing Active Copper Cable options for the rapidly expanding data center interconnect market," said Tristan Hsiao, Technical Marketing Manager at BizLink. "Spectra7 has created a compelling solution to address the dramatically increasing power and cost of data center interconnects."

"BizLink is a global leader in the interconnect solutions market," said Spectra7 CEO Raouf Halim. "The collaboration with them and demonstration of our GaugeChangerTM technology is a significant milestone in the coming volume deployment of our data center product line."

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

Spectra7 and BizLink will be showcasing QSFP ACC Cables with Spectra7's GaugeChangerTM technology at Booth #1239 at DesignCon.
