XCede® HD High-Density Backplane System

XCede® HD High-Density Backplane System

Small form factor high-density backplane system ideal for density-critical applications, with a modular design and optional features for flexibility and customizable solutions.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

xcede hd

XCede® HD combines a small form factor with incredible design flexibility for significant board and system space savings. The system’s modularity gives designers the opportunity to create a fully custom backplane solution with optional power modules, guidance & keying, and side walls for increased durability. Featuring a staggered differential pin design, the ground pins mate first for hot-plugging to help prevent system downtime.

Modular Design

XCede® HD consists of signal, power and keying/guidance modules for incredible design flexibility. The modules can be customized in any configuration to meet specific application requirements.

How to build a full solution:

  • Right-angle modules can be built into a single customizable BSP part. Build a BSP part by combining any number, in any configuration, of HDTFs, power and keying/guidance modules to create one receptacle.
  • Header modules mount to the backplane individually, in any configuration of HDTM and HPTS parts.
  • Build Your Custom XCede® HD Solution
  • Contact HSBP@samtec.com for more information about building a full XCede® HD solution.

Decisions, Decisions … I may be in the market for a new car in the near future. Unless you’ve got a strong preference (and most car buyers DO have a strong preference, IMO), choosing a vehicle is a series of trade-offs.  Fuel efficiency vs. horsepower. Functionality vs. appearanc...
I recently attended the Engineering Design Show in the UK, where one of the clear trends in evidence was the rise of power connectors for printed circuit boards (PCBs).  The reasons are pretty clear. New technology is making ever-greater demands for more power in smaller spaces. ...
