ERNI electronics (Adelberg) has developed a high density high-speed connector system -- ERmet ZDHD family -- which supports data rates of up to 25 Gbps. Based on these connectors, the company asserts 100 Gbps systems (with four 25 Gbps channels according to the IEEE 802.3bj standard) can be built. In addition to the existing six-pair version, the company offers compact four-pair male and female parts of the ERmet ZDHD connectors. The ERmet ZDHD system offers:
Fourteen contact rows/inch with six or four differential signal pairs/row
- Total 84 respectively 56 differential signal pairs/inch are available.
- Miniaturized vias to enable an optimized crosstalk behavior.
- Robust alignment guides on the male side walls to support a reliable mating.
