PCI Express Connectors Support 2.5 Gb/s Rates

The company's line of edge-card connectors for the PCI Express architecture offers one to 16 lanes to match unique bandwidth requirements. Each lane includes differential transmit and receive signal pairs that support data rates up to 2.5 Gb/s in each direction. A 36-position connector supports a single lane and can replace a standard PCI connector. For higher bandwidth, 4- and 8-lane versions are available. Additionally, a 164-lane component is available for replacing AGP connectors and is said to provide twice the bandwidth in both directions. Prices range from $0.35 to $1.51 each/10,000.
