As part of the Ethernet Alliance® 10 Gbsp demonstration at Interop 2007, Molex Inc. demonstrated a reference backplane, featuring the I-Trac Backplane Connector System. Said Gourgen Oganessyan, senior signal integrity engineer at Molex, “The demonstration of error free 10 Gbps data transmission over a one meter channel in the I-Trac Reference Backplane illustrates the technological maturity and feasibility of this important standard.”
The I-Trac System features a broadside-coupled, skew-equalized design capable of data rates up to 12.5+ Gbps. It offers multiple benefits including excellent impedance control, low cross-talk, and high overall bandwidth. The open pin-field design gives customers the flexibility to assign high-speed differential pairs, low-speed signals, power and ground contacts anywhere within the pin-field.
