Backplane connector replaces standard VHDM-HSD part

Delivers 10-dB lower crosstalk and scales to date rates in excess of 10 Gbits/s

An upgrade to the company's industry-standard VHDM-HSD platform, the eHSD high-speed backplane connector delivers up to 10-dB lower crosstalk than that previous version and is scalable to data rates greater than 10 Gbits/s. The shielded, five-row, press-fit connector features an insertion loss of less than 2 dB at 10 GHz, supports differential pair architectures, and is fully backward compatible with existing VHDM-HSD slots to extend the life of existing designs and reduce development costs by scaling systems to next-generation speeds without the need for redesign.

The connector platform includes 5-and 8-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. (Per mated signal line, $0.10 to $0.12 ea/prod qty—available now.)
