A new high speed, rugged connector has been developed by Amphenol Aerospace that is capable of delivering data rates up to 10Gbps per pair.
The company advises it has integrated a high density Oval Contact System (OCS) to improve signal integrity via reduced cross talk as well as enhanced attenuation performance compared to an industry standard quadrax.
This connector is designed for high speed applications including 10/40G Ethernet, HDMI/DVI video, 1/2/4/8G Fibre Channel, SATA, Serial RapidIO and PCI Express and its rugged form makes it suitable for defense, commercial and industrial markets.
The new high density connectors come in nine insert patterns, the largest of which includes 21 differential pairs in a MIL-DTL-38999 series III shell size of 25. The connectors feature a reduced size and weight with a front release, rear removable contact system for easy repair.
