3M™ Twin Axial Cable Solutions

The 3M Twin Axial Cable solutions are the industry's first known flat, foldable and longitudinally shielded high-performance twin axial ribbon cables. These thin, bendable twin axial cables can be used for high data-rate applications, meeting today's data-rate requirement of 6 Gbps and up to 25 Gbps, all while making sharp turns and folds with little or no impact on the cable's electrical performance and overall signal integrity (insertion loss, impedence, skew, jitter, EMI). 3M Twin Axial cables are ideally incorporated into data center design to meet high-performance cable needs or to allow for improved airflow for cooling with its thin, bendable cable design.


  • QSFP+
  • SFP+
  • External and internal miniSAS
  • PCI Express

3M Twin Axial Cable Solutions provide:

  • Low-profile + flexibility = improved airflow and lower energy costs
  • Folded assemblies = high-density packaging
  • Flexible cable solutions = Fewer SKUs
  • Potential cost-savings via FR4 and re-driver elimination
  • Reliable high-speed performance

Networking and Data Center Applications:

  • Top-of-rack and End-of-row equipment
  • Storage racks, routers, and switches
  • RAIDs, JBODs, HBAs
  • Network Interface Cards (NICs)
  • InfiniBand, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SAS, PCIe
3M Twin-Ax cables have received InfiniBand certification. 3M's Revolutionary Cable Solution Recipient of 2011 R&D 100 Award
