High Density High Speed Connector System

November 21, 2008-FCI's new ZipLine connector system, the industry's highest density high speed connector, is available in production quantities ahead of schedule. Responding to greater than expected customer demand for increased signal density, FCI offers ZipLine connectors in orthogonal and backpanel configurations and corresponding power connectors for high volume applications. With transmission speeds up to 12.5Gb/s and density up to 101 signal pairs per linear inch at 1.5mm column pitch, the ZipLine connector system is the industry's highest connector available with press fit termination.

"In less than a year, we have seen wide acceptance of ZipLine, primarily due to the need for greater density. This has allowed FCI to bring ZipLine to production quantities sooner than anticipated," said Jeff O'Brien, Global Product Manager, FCI.

ZipLine is built upon FCI's proven AirMax VSŪ technology and offers similar signal integrity performance. Like AirMax VS, the ZipLine connector 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 up to 12.5Gb/s without requiring re-design of a basic platform.
