Connector offers <2% crosstalk

Teradyne Inc. recently launched its GbX E-series connector that is optimized for differential architectures, and features crosstalk as low as 2 percent. An upgrade to the company's GbX platform with scaleable data rates greater than 10Gbps, the GbX E-Series connector promises a high level of mechanical reliability and a choice of density configurations for application flexibility.

"We developed GbX E-series with the high-performance systems designer in mind," said Colleen Murphy, GbX product manager. "Now, designers can scale their existing backplane platforms to much higher data rates using a drop-in replacement module without re-spinning their backplane design. This option represents a cost savings and quicker time-to-market for our customers."

The GbX and GbX E-series connectors include 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-pair versions with densities from 27.5 to 69 differential pairs per linear inch and additional power and guidance options. An L-series version for low speed signals is also available in the 2-, 3- and 4-pair configurations. These denser (69 to 151 single-ended contacts per linear inch), unshielded connectors can be end-stacked with the differential components in multiple hybrid formats.

The GbX E-Series platform connector is priced at approximately 10 to 12 cents per mated signal line in full production volumes and will be available in Q4 2005.
