CONNECTORS: Board connectors and cable assemblies for SAS 2.1 and SAS 3.0 signaling introduced by FCI

Connector specialist FCI Electronics in Etters, Pa., is introducing the MINI-SAS HD line of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) board connectors and cable assemblies for applications that require 6-gigabit-per-second SAS 2.1 and 12-gigabit-per-second SAS 3.0 protocol signaling.

These products will meet the needs hardware applications that otherwise might require either external I/O systems (with EMI provisions) or internal I/O systems, FCI officials say. The Mini-SAS HD internal board connectors come in 1-by-1, 1-by-2, and 1-by-4 configurations, and assure consistent electrical and mechanical performance, company officials say. The interface and latching features comply with SFF-8643 standards. The mating Mini-SAS HD internal cable assembly features internal Mini-SAS HD to Mini-SAS HD cable configurations and internal Mini-SAS HD to Mini-SAS legacy cables with sideband signaling for low-speed signal transmission.
