CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Newark/element14, a leading multi-channel, high-service electronics distributor in the Americas, and a business of Premier Farnell, announced today it was stocking TE Connectivity’s new Impact(TM) backplane connector system, which offers a unique broad-edge coupled design utilizing low 100 Ohm impedance, localized ground return path in an optimized differential pair array.
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.
