ZipLine™ High-Density, High-Performance Connector System

Amphenol FCI and Digi-Key offer maximum signal density at data rates up to 12.5 Gb/s

Image of FCI's ZipLine™ High-Density, High-Performance Connector SystemThe Amphenol FCI ZipLine™ connector system addresses customer demand for maximum signal density – a paramount requirement for future equipment platforms – at data rates up to 12.5 Gb/s.

The initial ZipLine™ signal modules with 1.8 mm column pitch support backplane and orthogonal midplane applications. A module with 72 differential pairs – consisting of 12 insert-molded leadframe assemblies (IMLAs), each supporting 6 high-speed differential signal pairs - provides the maximum density available by delivering 84.6 differential pairs per inch of card edge. Allowing a minimum 1-inch card slot pitch, the compact module dimensions help system designers address mechanical and thermal concerns. The 6-pair ZipLine™ signal IMLAs can also be configured on 1.5 mm column pitch to provide more than 100 signal pairs per inch of card edge for even more backplane signal density.

Features
  • Supports backplane and orthogonal midplane applications
  • 6-pair modules with IMLAs on 1.8 mm column pitch deliver 84.6 differential pairs per inch of card edge while allowing a minimum 1-inch card slot pitch
  • 6-pair modules can also be configured on 1.5 mm column pitch to provide >100 pairs per inch for even more density
  • 3-pair configuration is under development to enable use on 15 mm card slot pitch
  • Provides maximum signal density available at data rates up to 12.5 Gb/s
  • Use Amphenol FCI’s shield-less technology to deliver low insertion loss and crosstalk
  • Allows for mixed differential (orthogonal or backplane), single-ended or power pin assignments within a connector
  • A special power wafer, with up to 36 A capacity, can be integrated within a 6-pair module
  • Compatible with Hard Metric equipment practice
