VHDM® H-Series Backplane Connector System

Achieve data rates up to 6.25 Gbps with Molex's VHDM® H-Series Backplane Connector System

Molex's VHDM® H-Series Connector SystemThe Very High Density Metric 'H' Series (VHDM® H-Series) connector system from Molex is designed for applications that require very high interconnect density and high-speed signal integrity. VHDM H-Series enables an installed base to perform at 6.25 Gbps, enabling system upgrades without costly architecture redesigns. With an identical mating interface and envelope, the VHDM H-Series is fully backwards compatible with existing VHDM slots. Designers can use VHDM H-Series to extend the life of existing platforms, reduce development costs, and speed higher performance systems to market.

The signal portion of the VHDM H-Series connector system consists of modules in increments of 10 columns or 25 columns in either 6 rows or 8 rows. The daughter card connector consists of a metal stiffener that combines signal wafers, power modules, and guidance modules to make one continuous connector that can be ordered with one custom part number. The maximum length of a single stiffener is 300 mm (~12"). The power contacts can handle 10.0 A of current per blade, efficiently delivering up to 120.0 A per 25.00 mm (.984") of board edge with multiple mating levels for hot plug applications. Metal guide pins and key slots provide excellent guidance for large PCBs and eliminate the possibility of plugging a daughter card into the wrong slot.
