TTI - AirMax VS High Speed Backplane Connector System:

TTI (Europe) : 27 July, 2007  (New Product)
TTI Europe is the only distribution company in Europe that is currently able to supply FCI's AirMax VS (Virtual Shield) Connector System ex-stock. The world's leading independent passive component and connector specialist is FCI's 'focused partner' for the Airmax range, and believes that the revolutionary high speed backplane connector family is a must-see-product for any design engineers currently working on, or looking at, high speed backplane solutions. It is the only connector system of its type that allows for any allocation of signals within one connector. AirMax VS connectors also provide headroom to scale performance, allowing designers to increase data rates from 2.5 Gb/s to 25 Gb/s without the need to redesign their basic platform.
AirMax VS connectors feature an innovative design that uses air as a highly efficient dielectric and employs staggered contacts to produce ‘Virtual Shields', eliminating the need for inter-leaving metal shields that add cost and weight. The technology delivers high signal density with superior electrical performance - the industry's lowest insertion loss and lowest crosstalk. At the heart of this unique design is an Insert Moulded Leadframe Assembly (IMLA) that can be used for either Differential Pair signals, Single Ended signals or power – all within the same IMLA.

The two-piece connectors are available with 3mm or 2mm spacing between adjacent IMLAs. AirMax VS connectors with 2mm column spacing provide the highest signal density available with 25mm card slot spacing, accommodating up to 63 differential pairs or 95 single ended lines per inch. Widening the column spacing to 3mm allows system designers to increase the number of traces that can be routed in a PCB layer, enabling up to a 50% reduction in the number of layers in their high-speed backplanes and daughter-cards.

The backplane connectors are available in 150 or 120 position (5 differential pairs per column) configurations for 25mm slot pitch applications, a 120-position (4 differential pairs per column) configuration for 20mm slot pitch applications, or in 90-, 72- or 54-position (3 differential pairs per column) configurations for 16.7mm slot pitch applications. Coplanar interconnects are also available.
