SI test platform for evaluating ExaMAX®
High-Speed Backplane System
Next-generation data center equipment requires high-speed data paths across the backplane. Samtec’s ExaMAX® high-speed backplane interconnects deliver 56 Gbps electrical performance. The ExaMAX® Backplane SI Evaluation Kit provides system designers and SI engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing the ExaMAX®
High-Speed Backplane System.
The ExaMAX® Backplane SI Evaluation Kit (REF-205463-01) consists of one ExaMAX® SI Backplane (REF-200839-01) and two ExaMAX® SI Linecards (REF-200840-01). The system routes eight, high-precision differential pairs over a backplane using ExaMAX® connectors in a 4x10 configuration. It supports configurable backplane trace lengths via user-selected paddleboard placement. Users can configure the system with additional ExaMAX® SI Linecards as desired.
The ExaMAX® Backplane SI Evaluation Kit delivers a high-quality system with robust mechanical design. Please contact Samtec’s technical experts at
