The FCI ZipLine™ high-density, high-performance connector system is built upon FCI’s proven AirMax VS® technology and offers similar signal integrity performance. Like AirMax VS® connectors, the ZipLine™ connector system uses edge-coupling technology to deliver high signal density with low insertion loss and low crosstalk, all without the use of costly and space-consuming metal shields. Data rates can scale from 2.5Gb/s to 12.5Gb/s without requiring redesign of a basic platform. ZipLine™ connectors also provide the greatest signal density in three dimensions to help address mechanical or thermal concerns of system designers. In addition to superior signal density and electrical performance, the versatile ZipLine™ design offers incredible flexibility. Standard orthogonal, backplane, and power IMLAs can be configured in many ways to satisfy unique application requirements without the need for new tooling or long lead times.
