Eye Speed® I/O

Eye Speed® I/O

Rugged high speed cable systems feature a positive latching system and support multiple protocols.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

eye speed video poster

Samtec’s Eye Speed® I/O two piece system achieves high cycles and the 0.80 mm pitch connector design minimizes PCB real estate. The equalized cable option provides a performance boost to existing systems, without the expense of altering the board.

FEATURES

Passive Equalization

Equalized cables are beneficial in systems where equalization was not implemented into the chip. They are a simple way to upgrade existing systems without the expense of altering the board.

The equalized option is an ideal middle-ground solution for applications where traditional copper cables are inadequate, but an expensive optical upgrade is unnecessary.

Eye Speed Chart

Equalized Performance

Performance improvements include:

  • Usable length increased 20 - 35% with equalization
  • Usable data rate increased 20 - 30% with equalization
  • Reduced jitter and improved bit error rate
