Interconnections & Packaging: Cable Assembly For ZD Connectors Fields Bandwidths Of 5 Gbits/s

The Eye-Opener cable assembly for ZD backplane interconnects can operate at up to 5 Gbits/s. An expanded helically wrapped polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) dielectric core for the digital interconnect cable ensures controlled electrical properties throughout the signal path. According to its manufacturer, its smaller diameter, minimum bend radius, and low-dielectric-constant materials permit more signal lines per area and deliver high-bandwidth performance more consistently than comparable cable configurations. Other features include a low signal loss, low crosstalk, low skew, and controlled capacitance and impedance values.
