HARRISBURG, Pa. – TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the cabled STRADA Whisper connectors to help eliminate the need for printed circuit board (PCB) backplanes in high-performance computing (HPC) and core routing applications.

The cabled STRADA Whisper connectors can support 25-to-56-gigabit-per-second PAM-4, with future expansion to 56-gigabit-per-second NRZ. Cabled STRADA Whisper connectors also reduce insertion loss for improved channel margin.

Connection options expand if they are not being tied to a circuit board, company officials say.

TE offers three main cabled STRADA Whisper solutions: point-to-point cable, value-add assemblies, and a full backplane/midplane solution.
