High Speed Interconnect Solutions
Sabritec offers a complete line of electrical and optical contacts and connectors to satisfy all of your challenging High Speed datatransmission requirements. When a rugged copper interface is required for your design, Sabritec offers differential twinax andquadrax connectors, contacts and cable assembliesfor high speed Ethernet, Firewire, and Fibre Channelapplications.
Differential pair quadrax and twinax connectorsand cable assemblies offer superior performancein high speed matched impedance data-on demandapplications. The signal to signal and signal to shieldcharacteristic impedance is maintained throughoutthe connector pair. A true twinaxial connector inter-face maintains signal integrity while minimizing jitterand bit error rates.Sabritec’s advanced design capabilities meet orexceed both standard and non-standard protocols.Some of the more common protocols are thefollowing:• Fibre Channel• Ethernet: 10 Base-T, 100 Base-T, 1000 Base-T• Firewire: IEEE 1394a and 1394b• USB, DVI, HDMI, and Inniband
New Size 10 Quadrax/Twinax Contacts
Sabritec's size 10 Twinax and Quadrax contactsoffer the best size to performance relationship in theindustry. The precise control of the geometry withinthe contact gives rise to an ultra high performancecontact that is only limited by the cable or PCB thesystem designer attaches to it. S-Parameter datagenerated from the 3-d model show less than 0.2dBloss, per mated pair, through a 10 GHz sweep,making this contact ideal for any of the high speedprotocols on the market today. Indeed Fibre Chan-nel, Ethernet, Firewire (IEEE 1394) or other customprotocol driving multi-gigabit data rates can take ad-vantage of the electrical performance designed intoeach contact. The Size 10 gives the system designernew options for all their rugged high speed I/O.
Reduction in size of 30% from Size 8 and a•25% from Size 9 contact sizes. Allows for more signals per connector as well•as more signal density per square inch of panelspaceOffered in 100 ohm Quadrax and/or 100/150•ohm differential pair TwinaxThese contacts are available in MIL-DTL-38999 and Rugged D-Sub formats.•When a rugged optical interface is required for your design, Sabritec offers ruggedized connectors such as MIL-DTL-38999 tohouse ber optic contacts in expanded beam and butt joint technologies. Size 5 & 12 expanded beam contacts, size 16 butt-joint,plastic optical, DIN and ARINC 801 termini technologies. These contacts are capable of supporting both Single mode and Multimode applications.Sabritec also offers Electro-Optical transceivers; a cutting edge ber optic solution to enhance copper cabling byincorporating the industry’s most innovative ber optic technology advancements. This copper-to-ber Active Electro-Optical Cable Assembly Transceiver is ideal for high speed network and data communications in harsh environments. All ber optic connectorsand contacts are offered fully terminated and tested ensuring signal integrity for ruggedized application environments. When speci-fying these rugged connectors, Sabritec also offers a complete line of ber optic connectors to terminate to the other end of thecables. These include Ruggedized Single Channel (RSC), FC, ST, LC Duplex/Simplex, MTP, MT-RJ and Ruggedized SC connectors.
