|3M's Shielded Controlled Impedance (SCI) Cable Assembly Development Kit from its Electronic Solutions Division is designed to help engineers assess, test, and design appropriate high-performance 2mm SCI cable-to-board solutions for their applications.
When used with standard 2mm latch/eject headers from 3M for multi-GHz cable-to-board applications , the SCI connectors save valuable board real estate without sacrificing performance compared to the BNC or SMA connectors frequently used with coaxial and the specialized twin axial connectors used with twin axial cable. This is particularly true for applications where multiple high-speed coaxial or twin axial cable-to-board connectors need to be bundled together.
This solution is ideal for a variety of high-performance or high-signal integrity cable-to-board applications in the industrial control/factory automation, medical, test and instrumentation, video postproduction equipment, and military electronics industries.
Designers can use the development kit to verify signal integrity, impedance matching, and crosstalk performance for designs that require up to 1Gbps single-ended performance per signal line or 5Gbps differential performance per signal pair. The development kit contains everything required to assess, test, and design a high-performance 2mm cable-to-board solution.
