Teradyne offers 6-row High-Speed-Differential interconnect

NASHUA, N.H. -- Engineers at Teradyne Connection Systems in Nashua, N.H., are unveiling a new 6-row version of their High-Speed-Differential interconnect, better know as HSD.

Teradyne, which manufactures custom backplanes, high-speed/high-density interconnects, and electro-mechanical packaging subassemblies, announced the product Jan. 18.

The VHDM-HSD 6-row connector system uses an orthogonal, or in-line, grid rather than a staggered grid. This enables designers to use spaces as wide as 10 mils and run through the connector without jogs. This is especially beneficial for high-speed applications, since it reduces skin-effect losses, Teradyne officials say.

The connector's board routing feature and measured signal integrity capability greater than 5 gigabytes per second are crucial to design board-to-board interconnect systems that will support OC-48 systems, company officials say.

Similar to the VHDM single-ended connector, the HSD version shares the same polarizing/guidance and power module options. Also, designers can use the connector on the same stiffener as the 6-row single-ended version of VHDM and fits the same 18-millimeter slot pitch, company officials say.
