MultiLane SMPS Interconnects – Driving Test Board Innovation

Stand E30

15th May 2024

MultiLane SMPS connectors & cable assemblies provide an avenue for much-needed innovation, particularly for 224Gbps/lane test board applications. As traces become denser and pitches tighter, traditional use of RF precision connectors in high-performance test board designs cannot account for stringent geometry and density required to maintain adequate SI at 224Gbps/lane. Originally designed for the ATE market, the SMPS interconnect family allows the connectors to be placed adjacent to the DUT through its high density 2.54 mm pitch form-factor. Solderless installation and blind-mate interface ensure repeatability in high-frequency applications up to 110GHz.
