*ExaMAX® is a trademark of FCI.
Combining the electrical and mechanical benefits of the ExaMAX® interconnect system with the materials and routing expertise of Teraspeed® Consulting has allowed Samtec to develop a high-speed backplane system concept that optimizes both cost and performance. The system:
The result is a reduction of approximately 25% the cost of a traditional backplane system.
|Low-loss PCB||FR-4 + Cables||Total Savings|
|SYSTEM COST||$1390 (1 backplane panel + connectors)||$1395 to $1091 (for various cable architectures)||0% to 21%|
A future-proof 28 Gbps performance design offers an easy migration path to 56 Gbps. With a choice of 28 Gbps performance on a 2.00 mm column pitch, or 56 Gbps performance on a 3.00 mm col umn pitch, designers have the option of optimizing density or minimizing board layer count for high-speed backplane applications.
