"Spectra7 has created an innovative and compelling solution to address the dramatically increasing power and cost of data center interconnects," said Mick Felton, Director of Engineering, ACES US. "We are seeing significant interest from our largest customers for both 200 and 400 Gbps ACCs with Spectra7's technology and are pleased to be working with Spectra7."

GaugeChanger™ is a unique analog redriver technology that allows copper to extend to much longer lengths without the cost and power penalty of optics or DSP based retimed copper solutions. Typical power savings of 700% to 1000% are achieved compared to these competing technologies. 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.

"We are extremely proud to be working with ACES to broaden access to our ACC solutions using our innovative GaugeChanger™ technology," said Spectra7's CMO John Mitchell. "ACES is a well-known manufacturer of electronic connectors, supplying solutions across a global customer base for use in the Hyperscale, OEM and ODM interconnect markets."

Spectra7's GC2502 is in full production and is being deployed in volume now. ACES anticipates delivering cable sample to their customers for qualification in the second half of 2022.
