3M High Routability External MiniSAS Cable Assembly, 8G26 Series, is a passive copper cable assembly which utilizes 3M™ Twin Axial Cable technology to create a highly-flexible, foldable, high-performance solution, with up to 6 Gbps per lane, that meets and exceeds SAS 2.1 requirements. The unique core cable technology allows 3M cable assemblies to be extremely low profile and lightweight while virtually eliminating high-frequency resonance, allowing the cable to fold and bend with minimal to no impact on performance. The cable’s small bend radius enables efficient routing in tight spaces to achieve even greater density and help improve airflow.  3M external MiniSAS passive copper cable assemblies are ideal for storage, servers, switches and networking applications.
