High-Density Connectors Designed for Backplane and Orthogonal Applications
Wed, 12/12/2007 - 9:16am
FCI introduces the ZipLine connector system in response to customer demand for increased signal density. Designed for both backplane and orthogonal applications, the connectors can reach speeds of 12.5 Gb/s with up to 101 signal pairs per linear inch at 1.5 mm column pitch, making ZipLine one of the highest density connectors available with press-fit termination. The ZipLine connector system uses edge-coupling technology to deliver high signal density with low insertion loss and low crosstalk, all without the use of costly and space-consuming metal shields. Data rates can scale from 2.5 Gb/s to beyond 12 Gb.
