Yamaichi Electronics, a market leader for Test & Burn-In sockets and connectors, has launched a new 0.5 mm pitch high-speed transmission FPC connector catering to several markets like industry, automotive, and data networking. It has a compact design, carries direct locking feature, and can transmit up to 20 Gbps. With the standard FPCs, the system can transmit only up to 10 Gbps but Yamaichi’s original FPC called TFLEX enables a high-speed transmission of up to 20 Gbps. The internal connection can be provided as a whole package containing cable and connector, as per customers’ demands.
Yamaichi Electronics, a market leader for Test & Burn-In sockets, connectors, and connect on systems, has released a new connector. It has been developed for the recent CFP8 specification for 400 Gbps applications. Complying with the CFP MSA Multi-Source Agreement, this device is one of the few connectors in the world market that can achieve 400 Gbps of the transmission rate. Carrying the same size as the CFP2, the CFP8 has a 4 times higher performance so as to achieve 400 Gbps instead of limiting to 100 Gbps. Besides, it supports configurations like 25 Gbps x 16 channels, 50 Gbps x 8 channels, or 100 Gbps x 4 channels. The pin count is 124 pins whereas the narrow pitch measures just 0.5 mm which is one of the most challenging achievements of Yamaichi Electronics.
