PC-Board Connector Optimizes LVDS Differential Signal Transmission

The newest member of the high-speed, matched-impedance MicroGiGaCN mezzanine connector series, the FCN-260(D) enables differential-signal transmission at 3.125 Gbits/s and above over FR-4 material. It targets data-link/low-voltage differential-signaling (LVDS) operations in datacom/telecom applications, optical module interface applications, high-speed video equipment, high-speed test equipment, logic analyzers, and medical instrumentation. Its modified strip-line structure results in ±10% impedance matching and near-end crosstalk of 4% or less at 50-ps rise time. The board-to-board socket is available in 12, 24, and 36 pairs. Its SMT leads use a lead-free process with gold coating in place of solder. Rated at 30 V dc, 0.5 A (signal), and 1.0 A (ground), it provides two-level sequential mating of contacts to enable active connect and disconnect for hot pluggability. Available now, the FCN260(D) costs $5.50 each in 10,000-piece lots.
