ExaMAX® 56Gb/S High Speed Backplane Connector

SUPPORTS MANY INDUSTRY STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS; MIGRATION PATH TO HIGHER BANDWIDTH APPLICATIONS

ExaMAX® backplane connector system meets industry specifications requiring higher bandwidth applications from 25Gb/s to 56Gb/s. The optimized connector design delivers superior signal integrity performance resulting in low crosstalk noise and low insertion loss while minimizing channel performance variation for every differential pair. Each signal wafer incorporates an innovative one-piece, embossed ground structure to improve crosstalk performance through 56Gb/s. The simple, functional design contributes to a very cost-effective solution.

  • The innovative beam-on-beam contact interface minimizes residual stub for improved signal integrity performance while providing exceptionally low mating forces

  • ExaMAX® optimizes design flexibility by integrating high speed differential signals, low speed signals and power in one connector

  • ExaMAX® product family is offered in industry standard packaging options including traditional backplane, coplanar board, orthogonal midplane and orthogonal direct mate, mezzanine and cable to board
