FCI 2mm Hardmetric Millipacs High-Speed Series
The FCI 2mm Hardmetric Millipacs High-Speed series was developed for 10Gb/s applications.
FCI has launched the high-speed version of its Millipacs series connector. The Millipacs series 2mm hardmetric (HM) backplane connector is used extensively for applications that require data rates up to 2.5Gb/s.
FCI developed a new Millipacs high-speed (HS), right-angle receptacle connector suitable for data rates up to 10Gb/s and with mating compatibility to the IEC 61076-4-101 series 2mm HM vertical header. The Millipacs HS receptacle and standard 2mm HM header mating combination deliver lower cross-talk performance at high frequencies.
Millipacs HS is a five-row receptacle that offers row-based differential signal assignments, while still meeting the IEC 61076-4-101 2mm HM receptacle product specification (except for the PCB footprint that is optimized for signal integrity performance). In addition, this product meets the requirements of IEEE 803.2ap. FCI provides technical support with test reports to confirm the suitability based on customer-specific conditions.
“FCI’s new Millipacs HS will enhance the versatility of the legacy backplane systems,” said Abin Simon, FCI product director, backplane 2mm portfolio. “This will provide the industry with cost-effective upgrades to higher data rates as it retains the existing vertical headers in backplanes and avoids expensive changes to the existing backplane architecture.”
