VS Connectors Penetrate Blade Server Platforms

The company now offers more configurations of its popular AirMax VS high-performance connector system that support blade server platforms. The signal connectors, guide modules, and power connectors are suitable for connecting a Compute Blade module, Compute Blade Mezzanine module, or a Chassis Management Module to a midplane in a SSI modular blade server chassis. The high-speed interconnect channels support industry-standard technologies such as PCI Express Gen 2, Infiniband, Fibre Channel, and IEEE802.3ap-2007 Backplane Ethernet (1000BASE-KX, 10GBASE-KX4, or 10GBASE-KR). A short-detect contact in the signal connectors allows hot-swap insertion and removal of Compute Blade and Computer Management modules. For more details and prices, call FCI USA INC., Etters, PA.
