Eye Speed® Sealed I/O Cable System Delivers Superior High Speed Performance

Press release date: December 1, 2012

Samtec has expanded its line of high speed I/O interfaces to include a new rugged version Eye Speed® Sealed I/O Cable System for reliable performance in panel-to-panel applications and harsh environments. The system features Samtec’s Edge Rate™ contact system for superior signal integrity performance and is IP68 rated sealed for protection against water and dust.  The Eye Speed® system supports several industry standard protocols including SAS, SATA, Fibre Channel, Ethernet, PCIe® and InfiniBand™.

The rugged Eye Speed® Sealed I/O RCH Series is available in one, two and three meter cable lengths of 32 AWG low skew pair cable with 100Ω differential pair signal routing, 28 AWG cable for power lines and a flexible 1.00" (25,4 mm) bend radius. This cable assembly mates with a right angle PCB connector and cage (ERI8 and RPBH Series) on a compact 0,80 mm (.0315") pitch for minimal PCB board space. This two-piece system allows for high cycles and features a positive latching system with audible click for heavy-duty handling.

The sealed cable assembly with PCB connector achieves superior performance and ruggedness primarily by using the Edge Rate™ contact system designed with a smooth, broad, milled mating surface for increased wear life. The metal-to-metal contact is more reliable than paddle card style interfaces, thus the system boasts excellent impedance matching, reduced broadside coupling and crosstalk as well as low insertion and withdrawal forces.
