Heilind Electronics, Inc., a global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for 3M, has expanded its selection of cabling solutions with the company’s new SlimLine Twin Axial Cable Assemblies.

Qualified to SFF-8654 specification, SlimLine is one of several of 3M’s high-speed assembly products utilizing thin, low-profile ribbon cable. In fact, it is lower profile than similar AWG twin axial cables—thus allowing for more packaging configurations and routing options within a server. The product also features foldable ribbon construction, enabling extremely tight bend radii without compromising performance.

Ideal for PCIe (85 ohm) applications, 3M’s SlimLine features signal wire sizes of 30 and 31 AWG and standard lengths of 0.5 meter, 0.75 meter and 1 meter. It is offered in both x4 and x8 configurations, as well as straight and right angle options. Custom-folded assemblies are available.
