AirMax VS® 85Ω connectors are optimized to minimize impedance discontinuities and unacceptable signal loss when inserted in 85Ω channels. The connectors’ mating interfaces also satisfy demands for backwards compatibility to legacy 100Ω product interfaces ensuring a smooth transition to next-generation designs.
These products have been tested and fully comply with the differential insertion loss, impedance, and crosstalk requirements defined in the Intel® QPI connector specifications. With the Intel® QPI architecture offering transfer rates of 6.4Gb/s to >8Gb/s per lane between processors or processors and I/O controllers, memory bandwidth utilization is significantly lower, enabling multiple bi-directional 10 GbE ports in a server.
Standard connector configurations include vertical and right-angle header and receptacle signal modules to enable backplane and coplanar connections.
