Connector Can Carry 5-Gbps Duplex Data

Feb. 1, 2001

Employing a reduced form factor than previous HSSDC products, the HSSDC2 connector is designed to facilitate data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps. Plugs are die cast with a stamped latch-ground spring, impedance controlled pc board, and seven high-speed contact pads. The receptacles offer six chassis ground locations, six pc board grounding/retention contacts, four grounding contacts for cable-to-plug connections and a metal EMI/RFI shield. The plug and receptacle utilize polarization and keying.
The connector can accept cable from 22 to 30 AWG and employs an overmolded strain relief. It is designed for 250 mating cycles and employs gold-over-nickel plating on signal contacts.
