Cable Assembly Built For ZD Backplane Interface

A new cable assembly has been designed for the ZD backplane interface. The Eye-Opener ZD cable assembly combines the company’s high data rate digital cable assembly technology with the ZD high-speed connector to create an interconnect that is said to deliver exceptional signal fidelity and reliability at bandwidths of 5 Gb/s and higher. The assembly uses expanded polytetrafluoroethylene as the dielectric core for the digital interconnect cable. The helically wrapped ePTFE core ensures controlled electrical properties throughout the signal path. According to the company, the product’s smaller diameter and minimum bend radius, combined with the low dielectric constant materials, attains more signal lines per area and delivers higher bandwidth performance more consistently than comparable cable configurations.
