Zip Line Power Module Provides Highest Density and Superior Flexibility

Designed for both backplane and orthogonal applications, the power IMLA has a current carrying capacity of 7 A per position, or 42 A per column, as tested for 30°C temperature rise in still air when a single 6-contact power IMLA is integrated within a signal module. The system uses edge-coupling technology to deliver high signal density with low insertion loss and low crosstalk, all without the use of costly and space-consuming metal shields. Data rates can scale from 2.5 Gb/s to 12.5 Gb/s without requiring redesign of a basic platform. The connector system provides 84.6 differential signal pairs/inch linear density when configured with six differential pairs per column at 1.8 mm column pitch.
