Molex, Inc. introduces an 85 ? product to its Impact backplane connector family to meet the demands of next generation server, storage and data networking equipment. This connector system supports Intel's Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) standard, PCI Express Generation 2.0 and 3.0, as well as any proprietary system design where 85 ? differential impedance is desired. Allowing designers to interchange 100 and 85 ? signal modules based on system needs, the Impact 85 ? connector and the Impact 100 ? connector systems are designed to be the same physical size, same density, same pitch, and same PCB layout, and use the same guidance and power solutions. The 85 ? model is offered in a light gray LCP, so designers can color code their designs to avoid confusion between the 2 lines.
