Highlighting Market Adoption of Active Copper Interconnects
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 showcasing its
innovative GaugeChangerTM technology for data center Active
Copper Cables (ACCs) at the Optical Networking and Communications
Conference & Exhibition (OFC) in San Diego, CA running from March 5th
though the 7th, 2019.
“We’ve seen a fantastic response for our active copper cable technology,
especially in the hyperscale data center market,” said Spectra7’s CEO
Raouf Halim. “With the buildout of these data centers accelerating, we
