The TwinMezz® connector system provides superior electrical performance at the highest data rates, the highest signal density, and the lowest insertion force when compared to other available mezzanine connectors. Industry-leading signal integrity performance makes it the only choice capable of meeting the design requirements for 20+Gb/s mezzanine applications.
With 6 differential signal pairs per column, the system provides maximum signal density - delivering 25 pairs/cm2 , or 161 pairs/in2 . The innovative hermaphroditic design “mates to itself” reducing the number of part variations needed to accomplish stack heights ranging between 12mm and 40mm with 200-800 total contacts.
The TwinMezz® connector system provides exceptional flexibility with integrated molded or optional metal guides and the capability to mix signal and power wafers in a single connector. The versatile open pin field design offers additional flexibility by allowing for mixed differential, single-ended or power pin assignments in a single connector.
TwinMezz® connectors also feature AFCI’s patented BGA connector termination for easy surface-mount attachment and efficient trace routing.
