The new 3M™ High Routability Internal miniSAS Cable Assemblies 8F36 Series utilize 3M’s ultra-low-profile, high speed, high signal density 3M™ Twin Axial Cable SL8800 Series. Available with and without sidebands, these cable assemblies are ideal for space-constrained systems. The cable assembly is unjacketed, extremely thin and very flexible. These assemblies can route along the sides of cabinets and through narrow openings between fans or heat sinks. Sharp turns are easy to navigate, due to the foldability of this unique cable. It can even be folded in multiple locations with minimal loss or performance impact and will still pass SAS 2.1 performance requirements.
