“There is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ interconnect technologies to support different applications across today’s enterprise and hyperscale data centers,” said Aldo Lopez, president, Datacom Solutions, Molex. “We offer our customers and ecosystem partners the broadest portfolio of future-proof interconnect solutions, which ease transitions to new architectures and simplify engineering development while reducing costs and time to market.”
This latest addition to the Molex copper interconnect family joins Active Copper Cable (ACC), which works just like passive cable to extend the reach of external cabling and supports low-power linear amplifier-based semiconductors for improved power management and thermal needs.

As part of its customer-centric and partner-focused activities, Molex supports a full IEEE- and MSA-compliant portfolio and product roadmap to meet both intra-data center interconnect, and data center interconnect requirements. The expanding optical transceiver family includes 100G-DR, 100G-FR, 100G-LR, 400G-DR4 (500m and 2km), 400G-FR4, 400G-LR4, 400G-ZR and 400G-ZR+ as well as 800G roadmap products.
Molex’s pluggable optical transceiver models all benefit from the company’s vertical-integration expertise in silicon photonics, photonic integration, module assembly and packaging. Together, these integrated capabilities and experience enable Molex to deliver optimized data rates and low power consumption in a small form factor.
