New, robust flex cable designs
Quarch have developed new designs for the flex cables used on our modules. The robust design of these new cables gives them higher resistance to accidental damage if they’re jerked or pulled.
The roll-out of the new cables will be achieved in phases, with the new cables ultimately replacing the existing design on all Quarch drive modules.
Another new cable which allows external triggering on drive modules will also be rolled out for a select range of modules, such as the Gen4 PCIe U.2 Module and the U.3 Drive Module. This cable adds the trigger in/out features found on larger modules like the Gen4 x16 Slot Module; until now these features haven’t been available on drive modules due to the lack of space.
