Connector System Accelerates Backplane Apps

Groomed for low-risk, high-performance backplane interconnections requiring a future speed upgrade to 10 Gb/s, the GbX backplane-connector system handles data rates from 6 to 10 Gb/s while providing 27 real differential pairs per 10 mm. Able to route signals in two directions, the system promises to eliminate PCB layers and the need for extra protective mechanical hardware. It specifies an impedance of 100V and a crosstalk of less than 5% at all data rates. The system consists of daughter-card assemblies, fortified with a stainless-steel stiffener and an integrated guidance system that uses stainless-steel guide pins to provide stub-free mating. Other features include compatibility with existing and future generation XAUI and InfiniBand systems, and provisions for emerging OIF standards. The system is available in 5- and 4-pair configurations, with a 3-pair available in 2005. Pricing in production volumes is from $0.13 to $0.16 per mated signal. MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (630) 969-4550
