FCI Develops the DensiShield™, a High-Speed Copper I/O Solution

ETTERS, P.A. (January 7, 2009)- FCI, a leading developer of connectors and interconnect systems has developed the DensiShield™, a high-speed copper I/O solution. It has demonstrated 10Gb/s per channel differential performance using common wire gauges in cable lengths up to 10 meters. The existing DensiShield system supplies 4-channel capability and consequently delivers an aggregate bandwidth of 40Gb/s. The DensiShield test set up features Broadcom BCM8072 dual-channel transceivers compliant to the IEEE802.3ap test criterion. The 10Gb/s per channel differential performance can be achieved at 6 meters or less by utilizing 30 AWG cable, at 8 meters or less by utilizing 28 AWG cable and 10 meters or less by utilizing 26 AWG cable.

In addition to the 10Gb/s performance, the DensiShield high-density/speed solution has demonstrated performance meeting both the 10GBase-CX4 Ethernet and InfinibandR industry standards. The DensiShield system is also able to accommodate card slot pitch as low as 15mm and achieve a port-to-port centerline of 12.5mm along a card edge. FCI also offers a DensiShield header that fits within the uTCA defined packaging profile.

The DensiShield I/O system meets the emerging market requirements for 10Gb/s per channel performance at cable lengths typically required for within-rack or rack-to-rack cabling applications. Customers have acknowledged FCI's expertise in delivering high-speed and high-density solutions that support the markets ever increasing needs for 10Gb/s per channel and greater performance along with minimum 40Gb/s aggregate bandwidth.
