Available with a variety of mounting options, Samtec Inc.'s new EEDP series of high data rate cable assemblies provide a flexible high-speed cable system for HSEC8 series edge card interfaces.

The differential pair cable assemblies are manufactured with 30 AWG low dielectric constant twin-ax cable. They are suitable for long cable lengths, up to one meter standard, with custom lengths up to 1.8m (6 feet). They offer low skew and excellent EMI performance in differential pair applications, said the company. Solder joints are fully encapsulated for added reliability and a variety of standard locking and latching options are available for applications that require rugged interfaces. Standard assemblies are available with 8, 16, 24, and 32 pairs.

Mating connectors may be oriented on the boards vertically for the HSEC8-DV series or edge mounted for the HSEC8-EM series. For applications that require the cable to run parallel to the board, where edge mounting of the connector is not desirable, right-angle surface-mount connectors (MEC8-RA) are also available. For more information, visit the company's website. Typical pricing is $2 per line. Pricing varies by length and number of conductors.
