3M™ High Routability SAS 2.0/2.1 compatible 8x (8 channel) Cable Assembly, 8F68 Series, is a copper cable assembly which utilizes 3M™ Twin Axial Cable technology to create a highly-flexible, foldable, high-performance solution. The 8F68 series miniSAS cable assembly supports SAS 1.0, 2.0 and 2.1 applications while exceeding SAS 2.1 requirements up to 1 meter. The 8F68 series cable assembly supports 8 channels (8x) vs. the 8F36 series which support 4 channels (4x). The cable construction is thin and lower profile than other similar AWG twin axial cables. This allows for dense routing and flexible routing options within a chassis. Further, the 3M™ Twin Axial cable used is foldable and allows for extremely tight bend radii. There is minimal performance impact of folding, and enables unique packaging configurations.
