FCI recently launched its latest line of 12Gbps SAS receptacles for the enterprise storage and server industry. The SAS connectors boast data speed of 12Gbps, accelerating server applications' ability to access data.

The 12Gbps SAS product range complies with the SAS 3.0 and SFF8680 specification in terms of mating interface, performance and signal integrity. The devices are also compatible with the company's 6Gb/s SAS connector, easing design migration.

The connectors support hot plugging and blind mating of HDDs and SSDs. Its built-in moulded guide posts provide angled lead-in to facilitate easy connection and prevent misalignment. The high-speed, serial interfaces also support differential signalling, minimising interference and facilitate high-speed transmission of data.

The SAS connectors are available in through-hole solder, press fit, surface mount, or hybrid (combination of surface mount and through-hole leads) termination. Wide base housing options are also available to provide additional stability.

FCI also offers a wide range of storage and server I/O connector options commonly used in enterprise applications that employ 6Gb/s SAS (SFF8482), Serial ATA (SATA), or FibreChannel drives for data storage, DDR memory and PCIe connector.
