Differential pairs are tightly coupled and surrounded by ground structures to isolate the pairs, which in turn reduces crosstalk and increases overall bandwidth 25 Gb/s performance with minimal performance variance. The Impact connector system is ideal for high speed, backplane applications such as switches, servers/blade servers, routers and storage.

A TE Connectivity engineer is available for technical chat and the TE Connectivity line is available for same-day shipping at www.newark.com/te-connectivity
