Expanding the company's 2-mm hard-metric connector offerings are the Slim HM 4-row and 4+1-row backplane connectors. They comply with IEC 917 and IEC 61076-4-101 and fit with Universal Power Modules (UPM) on the same card/slot in spaces as narrow as 15 mm. According to the company, the new connectors enable the usage of hard metric practice in telecommunications and computer systems, as well as instrumentation applications. The connectors support data rates up to 2.5 Gb/s (differential signaling) with edge rates of 100 ps and a 1:1 signal-to-ground ratio (10-pair/20 mm). They also handle rates up to 1.5 Gb/s (also differential signaling) under the same conditions but with a 3:1 ground ratio (15-pair/20 mm).
