The Impact backplane connector system provides data rates up to 25 Gbps and superior signal density up to 80 differential pairs per inch. The Impact system's broad-edge-coupled transmission technology enables low cross talk and high signal bandwidth while minimizing channel-performance variation across every differential pair within the system. Molex's Impact system is available in two compliant-pin design options on both daughtercard and backplane connectors, providing customers ultimate flexibility to optimize their designs for superior mechanical and electrical performance. The Impact system's mating interface provides in-line staggered, bifurcated contacts that provide 2 points of contact for long-term reliability performance and built-in, ground-signal sequencing. This reduces the average mating force per connector to improve the mechanical mating performance of the system. The Impact backplane connector system is designed for traditional backplane and/or midplane architectures to meet the growing demand for next-generation telecommunication and data networking equipment manufacturers. The Impact system is available in 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-pair versions with a complete range of guidance and power-solution options. Other options available include: 2-, 3- and 4-pair coplanar, 5-pair mezzanine and 4- and 6-pair cable assemblies.

Features

  • Data rates scalable up to 25 Gbps. Supports future system performance upgrades.
  • Broad-edge-coupled, differential-pair system. Superior density, low cross-talk, low insertion loss and minimal performance variation across all high-speed channels.
  • Differential-pair density up to 80 pairs per linear inch. Highest speed, highest differential-pair density per square inch in the industry.
  • PCB routing flexibility. Simple 1.90 by 1.35mm (.075 by .053") grid on both backplane and daughtercard reduces PCB routing complexity and costs.
  • Two compliant-pin attach options. Provides customers ultimate flexibility to optimize their designs for superior mechanical and electrical performance.
  • In-line staggered, bifurcated contact beams in daughtercard interface. Superior mating performance with two points of contact for long-term reliability and built-in ground signal sequencing.
