56G PAM4 Cloud Connect Engine

400G AECs with 40% Less Power and Cable Volume. Best-in-Class Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS)

Experience the power of seamless data transmission and connectivity with the Point2 P1A560 Cloud Connect Engine. The P1A560 is purpose-built for 400G AECs. This advanced mixed-signal system-on-a-chip (SOC) integrates four-unidirectional SerDes channels with smart Clock Data Recovery (CDR)/Re-timer functions, supporting high-speed 56G (PAM4) or 28G (NRZ) data rates. Accelerate 400G AEC designs with C-Tube™ 400G AEC reference platform. This platform includes production-ready board design and proven firmware tested for CMIS functionality and field deployments. The P1A560 is ideal for Top-of-Rack (ToR) to Server, ToR-to-ToR, and Distributed Disaggregated Chassis (DDC) connectivity in AI/ML applications in hyperscale Data Centers, Enterprise, and edge cloud installations.

  • Lowest power – 400G performance at an industry low of 4.5W per cable end, striking the perfect balance between energy efficiency and top-notch performance
  • Incredibly fast – 400G performance with latency that is 75% lower than other solutions, enabling unprecedented throughput for GPU/HPC clusters in AI/ML applications
  • Thinner, lighter, and more flexible – Deploy AECs with 40% less volume to reduce cable congestion and improve airflow in data center rack installations
  • Unparalleled Signal Quality – Exceptional signal quality with pre-FEC Bit Error Rate (BER) that is one order in magnitude better than other solutions, ensuring reliable data transmission with smaller gauge copper wiring
  • Intelligent diagnostics – Deliver best-in-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) with intelligent diagnostic features that monitor crucial parameters such as BER, eye-opening, temperature, and loss-of-signal (LOS), allowing for proactive maintenance and optimized network performance
