recently completed the AC electrical characterization of a new, high
performance differential connector developed by Siemens, N. V. This new
connector, SpeedPacTM, has performance far beyond that reported
in the literature for differential backplane connectors. SpeedPacTM
was tested for transmission performance, differential impedance and
crosstalk characteristics over a variety of risetime and data rate
conditions with very positive results. This connector has been shown to
meet or exceed stringent data rate requirements and specifications set
forth by potential end users. It is geared toward high-end current and
future systems under design in the computer and communications market
SpeedPacTM is a registered trademark of Siemens Inc.
