ERNI demos SMC and MicroSpeed connectors
for systems with high data rate
ERNI Electronics has addressed the issue of connector miniaturization
by saying "Using the two-row SMC connectors in a 1.27mm
pitch and the 1.0mm MicroSpeed connectors, it is possible
to implement the most compact, modular systems with high
ERNI says SMC and MicroSpeed are reliable connector systems,
which, with dual-leaf contacts, go to ensure good contact
wipe length and secure mating, whilst also satisfying high-quality
contact surfaces requirements.
The concept of the mini backplanes is achieved by using
fine-pitch connectors to enable compact system designs with
high data rates.
ERNI offers SMC connectors in reliable pressfit technology,
which makes them ideally suited for passive backplanes.
For more demanding applications, the MicroSpeed high-speed
connectors in a 1.0mm pitch along with their corresponding
power modules are offered to address serial high-speed interconnects
such as PCI Express 1/2/3, Rapid IO, SATA 1 and 2, Fibre
Channel, USB3 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBASE-T or KR).
As shielded connectors, the MicroSpeed components are also
ideal for applications with EMC-open housings or particularly
demanding requirements in terms of the EMC performance.
