Molex Ruggedized Backplane Cable Assemblies Increase Bandwidth and Speed in Defense and Aerospace Applications
LISLE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
Incorporated announces its Ruggedized
Backplane Cable Assemblies, ideal for defense and aerospace
contractors looking to deliver high-speed data transfer between
commercial backplanes or servers, to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)
connectors including Impact™, Impel™, VHDM® or full military-qualified
interfaces. Customized backplane cables have gone through extensive
engineering testing to ensure they meet their respective
application-specified data rates and performance requirements and are
designed to mate to a large variety of ruggedized connectors.
"Expanding communication capabilities and data processing speeds through
state-of-the art technology is a fundamental goal for the U.S.
Department of Defense and aerospace contractors. But, these customers
want to be able to increase the data rates without incurring the high
cost of re-designing their systems with an optical solution," said Mark
Joseph, business development manager at Molex (News - Alert). "Our Ruggedized Backplane
Cable Assemblies solve this challenge by not only increasing data rates
between the server and rugged input/output connectors, but also by
offering multiple interconnect options and performance ranges all with a
rugged and reliable construction."
The assemblies reduce high transmission losses caused by long trace
lengths on crcuit boards and offer data throughput ranges of 2 to 25
Gbps depending on the configuration. Optional metal backshells provide
360� Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) shielding and reduce crosstalk
at the mating interface for improved system performance. A positive
latch feature facilitates a solid connection in shock or vibration
situations and offers an intuitive squeeze-and-pull mechanism for ease
of use. The blind mate capability allows for misalignment and provides a
"float" between mating surfaces.
