High-Speed Connectors and Contacts for High Data-Rate Transmission Protocols including USB.30, 10G Ethernet, SATA, DVI, HDMI and Others

High-Speed Connectors and Contacts for High Data-Rate Transmission Protocols including USB.30, 10G Ethernet, SATA, DVI, HDMI and Others

Rugged, High-Speed Connector Solutions for Mil-Aero Data Bus Protocols, Ethernet Networking and High-Data Rate Display Protocols including USB 3.0

High-speed connectors and contacts are interconnect devices optimized for compatible performance with popular data transmission protocols, ranging from aerospace-standard data bus protocols such as ARINC 1553 and CAN bus, to networking protocols such 1000BASE-T Ethernet, and peripheral and display protocols including USB 3.0 and SATA. Rugged high-speed connectors of this type incorporate shielded contact technologies suitable for use in aircraft avionics, weapons systems, radars, communication equipment and other aerospace / defense equipment that depend on uncompromised signal integrity.

Ethernet has become the dominant protocol type in high-speed systems due to its ability to efficiently move data over low bandwidth copper cabling. Standard Ethernet can reach up to 100 meters over copper through multiple mated interconnects. The Ethernet protocol is ubiquitous, backward-compatible and subject to ongoing improvement. Other popular protocols include SATA, DVI, HDMI, and SMPTE 3G-SDI which are ideally suited for transmission via shielded (high-frequency) contacts and cables. Each of these protocols poses a unique signal integrity challenge, typically met by a specialized high-speed connector and contact assembly.
