TE Connectivity STRADA WHISPER High Speed Backplane Connectors

STRADA WHISPER high-speed backplane connectors designed to transfer data at a blinding speed of 25 Gbit/s making them ideal for use in high performing, high-bandwidth systems. The STRADA WHISPER connectors can also be scaled up to 56 Gbit/s for future upgrades without the need for expensive backplane or midplane redesign. These STRADA WHISPER high-speed backplane header and receptacle connectors operate with low noise, low insertion loss and low skew offering design flexibility. The design of these high-speed backplane connectors uses EON (eye-of-needle) technology and the connector footprint is designed to reduce crosstalk. The signal pins of these STRADA WHISPER backplane connectors are protected by C-shaped 360-ground shields which provide high signal integrity.
