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.
