ExaMAX® high-speed backplane interconnects deliver 56 Gbps electrical performance.

The ExaMAX® contact system achieves two reliable points of contact at all times and minimizes residual stub for improved signal integrity performance, while providing low mating force and excellent contact normal force. Signal wafers incorporate a one-piece, embossed ground structure which improves crosstalk performance.

Traditional backplane and direct-mate orthogonal available with backplane cable and coplanar versions in development.

FEATURES:

56 G

  • Enables 56 Gbps electrical performance on 2.00 mm column pitch
  • Meets industry specifications such as PCI Express®, Intel OPI and UPI, SAS, SATA, Fibre Channel, Infini Band™ and Ethernet
  • Meets and exceeds OIF CEI-28G-LR specification for 28 Gbps standards
  • Direct-mate orthogonal eliminates the need for a backplane/midplane and shortens the signal path for improved signal integrity
  • Allows designers to optimize density or minimize board layer count
  • Samtec Teraspeed Consulting: Experts in design, optimization, and evaluation of high-speed backplane systems
  • Offerings: Traditional Backplane, Backplane Cable, Direct-mate Orthogonal, Coplanar
