Harrisburg, Pa.— Z-Pack High Speed Generation 3 offers 6- and 10-row versions of backplane connectors with contacts on a 2.5-mm pitch, yeilding up to 60 or 100 contacts per 25 mm. To support high-speed rates, the connectors offer a 50-ohm controlled impedance and a dual-microstrip configuration with an integral ground plane built between each row of contacts. The modular connector offers 25-mm signal modules and half-size end modules with guide pine that can combine to meet system needs. Three levels of sequencing are available for the signal pins.
