3M™ Twin Axial PCI Express X16 Extender Assemblies Gen 4.0 allow for extremely versatile routing and server system configuration while maintaining signal integrity. Ideal for PCIe® (85 ohm) 4.0 applications, 3M TwinAx PCIe Gen 4.0 assemblies feature flexible, foldable thin twin axial ribbon cables that allow more cable to be installed in small spaces. This adds design capability and helps maximize airflow for better thermal management.

    Featuring precision-formed, continuously laminated shields over the entire cables, 3M™ Twin Axial PCI X16 Extender Assemblies Gen 4.0 provides an extremely tight bend radius to flat cabling. Twin axial cables can be folded back on themselves while maintaining high-bandwidth, resonance-free signal integrity. More cable can be installed in smaller spaces, making it possible to add performance without rigid PCB and high-loss flex circuit assemblies, PCI Express re-timer chips and other costly and design-limiting solutions.

  • Extend your capabilities

    3M X16 extenders allow components to be configured for aesthetics, for functionality and for maximized airflow in small spaces. Technicians can offload signals from high-speed architectures, re-locate PCIe card slots, bridge between slots on two different PCBs, or place PCIe peripheral cards in virtually any orientation within a system chassis. 3M™ Twin Axial PCI X16 Extender Assemblies Gen 4.0 are also excellent for managing board space in dense server designs.
