AVX Corp. has developed a 2-mm hard metric connector that can enable system speeds up to 2.5 Gbits/s. The 7200 series connector reduces cross-talk with modular shielding and is available in all connector styles. The connector is suited for mobile phone base stations, line transmission systems, switching stations, embedded systems, and industrial control applications.
The modular shielding plate is placed between each contact module and connected to row C, which is located at ground level. When used in a differential pair application, the cross talk and propagation delay will be reduced and impedance peaks are lowered to a minimum level. The metric connector also enables a 4:1 signal to ground ratio when used in combination with top and bottom shielding. Pricing typically starts at $2.50 for quantities of 1000 pieces.
