Differential-Pair Connector Boosts Speed, Reduces Crosstalk

The eHSD connector embarks as an upgrade to the VHDM-HSD platform with a significant reduction in crosstalk (10 dB lower) and scalable data rates greater than 10 Gb/s. Optimized for differential pair architectures, the five-row, press-fit connector meets the latest IEEE 802.3ap v3.2 10GBASE-KR standard for 10-Gb/s serial capability. Other features include an insertion loss of less than 2 dB at 10 GHz and backward compatibility with existing VHDM-HSD slots. The eHSD platform includes five- and eight-row versions with densities from 25 to 38 real differential pairs per linear inch (10 to 15 real differential pairs per 10 mm) and additional power and guidance options. Pricing is approximately $0.10 to $0.12 per mated signal line in production volume. AMPHENOL CORP., Nashua, NH. (603) 879-3000.
