by cascade, do you mean multiple compressors hooked in series?
Similar, but cascades are basically multiple single stage units cooling each other. You have the first stage with a low pressure refrigerant such as R290, R404a, R507, etc. Instead of having the standard evaporator on this, the capillary tube sends refrigerant into a heat exchanger, which replaces the condensor on the second stage. That way, instead of having an ambient air cooled condensor, the second stage refrigerant is being cooled by the first stage refrigerant at lower than -30 degrees. The second stage has a higher pressure refrigerant, some of the common ones being R1150 (Ethylene) or R170 (Ethane). This allows for much lower cpu temperatures (<-70 celsius).
