The Z-PACK HM-Zd plus connector updates the daughter connection therefore enhancing performance through the incorporation of added ground contacts on the outside pair of the receptacle connector system which results in lower cross talk. The Z-PACK HM-Zd plus connector system performs at 15 Gbp/s with a migration plan to 20 Gbp/s. The daughter card connector remains compatible with the existing Z-PACK HM-Zd backplane connector.

This connector system is well suited for Advanced TCA next-generation applications. It is specified for Advanced TCA zone 2 requirements.


  • Enables field speed upgrades using the Z-PACK HM-Zd plus receptacles plugged into existing Z-PACK HM-Zd backplane connectors
  • 15 - 20 Gb/s performance
  • Connector upgrade including reduced crosstalk and skew, tighter impedance control, and improved signal throughput
  • Ideal for next generation AdvancedTCA designs
  • PCB footprint enhanced for lower crosstalk and improved impedance while permitting easier trace routing


  • Servers / Routers / Storage equipment
  • Test and measurement equipment
  • Medical diagnostic equipment
  • Advanced TCA next generation applications
