ERNI announced that it has supplemented its high-speed ERmet ZD line to include a vertical version with a 4-row female connector.

The new vertical ERmet ZD female connectors, with 2, 3 and 4 rows of contacts, expand the current portfolio of right-angle female and vertical male ERmet ZD connectors. High-speed connectors from the ERmet ZD series also enable reliable transmission of fast signals, high contact density and support of various industry standards, such as PICMG 2.20, PICMG 3.0 (ACTA) or PICMG EXP.0.

In addition, the vertical, 4-row, ERmet ZD female connector, with 40 differential signal pairs, is available with an assembly height of 15mm. According to the company, they also plan to offer assembly heights of 12mm and 22mm. These choices make it possible to implement Mezzanine applications with PCB stacking heights of 15-, 18- and 25mm. Moreover, one can implement inverted backplane configurations where the backplane is equipped with the female connectors and the male connectors are located on the daughter cards.

The new vertical ERmet ZD female connector is available with "pressfit" technology (with an eye-of-the-needle zone). As with current right-angle versions, the new connector also features alignment guides on the housing. These guides, in combination with the L-shaped shield blades on the male connector, ensure robust mating and provide solid protection against damage. Because of the optimized design and the effective shielding, the ERmet ZD System achieves impressive figures for crosstalk and reflections. In addition, ERNI said, comprehensive simulations confirm reliable transmission of signals at data rates up to 6.25Gbps.

The new Ermet ZD connectors are already available.
