Pulse Electronics Launches Integrated Connector Module Family for 10GBASE-T Ethernet Switches
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Electronics Corporation (NYSE:PULS), a leading provider of
electronic components, announces the launch of a new integrated
connector module (ICM) platform for 10GBASE-T (10 gigabit over
twisted-pair) switches. Pulse's (News - Alert) 10 gig ICMs are qualified with leading
10GBASE-T silicon vendors, meeting their stringent requirements and
facilitating the implementation of 10GBASE-T in large enterprises and
cloud data centers. The family includes the four most common port
configurations: 2x2, 2x4, 2x6, and 2x8, available with solder
through-hole or press fit pin technology. Pulse's 10 gig ICMs and
application support enable system designers to eliminate extensive
qualification, speeding time to market for their products.
The Pulse 10 gig ICMs have a patented shielding system that prevents
noise interference from adjacent ports, ensuring optimal data
transmission. The ICMs are tuned to have flat insertion loss curves and
excellent return loss performance over 10GBASE-T frequencies. They meet
IEEE (News - Alert) 802an and UL 60950 requirements. Unique to this family is a light
pipe that replaces integrated LEDs. With this new design, customers can
change LED specifications without having to change the ICM, which
streamlines procurement because the same part can be used on multiple
systems. This new platform also has the flexibility to support 1 gig or
10 gig magnetic designs with the same volumetric footprint.
According to Crehan
Research, 10 gigabit Ethernet switch ports will enjoy a four-fold
increase over the next five years as 10GBASE-T technology is being
adopted by a majority of data centers for use in server access and
switch port connections. "We expect that 1GBASE-T will be a key driver
of the strong ramp in 10 gigabit Ethernet switch ports over the coming
years, and its growth should significantly outpace that of the market,"
said Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research.
"Pulse's 10 gig ICM family is a critical element in the propagation of
10GBASE-T technology," explained Chad Oblak, product manager, Pulse
Electronics. "It is extremely difficult to design a 10 gig ICM that
meets the IEEE and system EMI requirements, and it is even more
difficult to manufacture 10 gig ICMs in high volume with a consistent
and high level of quality. Major switch manufacturers recognize and
endorse Pulse's expertise and ability to support this technology."
Pulse Electronics has invested in the development of products to enable
Ethernet LAN technologies for over 25 years, since 1 mbps Star Lan was
introduced in 1986. This new platform is the most advanced platform
Pulse has developed for the switching market.
Samples and prices are available upon request. Delivery is 8 - 10 weeks.
