TE Connectivity’s New Right Angle Cabled STRADA Whisper Backplane Connectors

  Performance. Trust. Innovation  
PressReleasePing - August 13, 2018 -

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduced its new right angle cabled STRADA Whisper backplane connectors, the first right angle cabled backplane connectors in the industry. Primarily used to connect graphics processing unit (GPU) to GPU within a switch or server, these connectors save valuable space and allow designers to fit inside an enclosure with the right angle cabled design.

The right angle cabled STRADA Whisper backplane connectors open up another avenue of options for system architects when designing equipment for high-density applications such as artificial intelligence (AI) data centres. At the same time, these new connectors continue to offer the same best-in-class electrical and signal integrity (SI) performance as the rest of the STRADA Whisper family. These products can support 56 Gigabits per second (Gbps) PAM-4 with future expansion to 112 Gbps PAM-4.

"Our industry first right angle cabled STRADA Whisper backplane connectors help designers improve the overall efficiency of their network equipment designs,” said Jim Gula, STRADA Whisper product manager at TE Connectivity. “As part of our STRADA Whisper portfolio, our right angle cabled STRADA Whisper connectors provide increased flexibility for system architects when interior enclosure space is limited. The STRADA Whisper products continue to help our customers design smarter and improve high-density connectivity."
