Even before Moore’s Law was established as a data rate benchmark, system designers faced the ever-increasing bandwidth-distance-density challenges of interconnecting shelves and cabinets within a system. There was a real estate problem even then. Today’s 10 Gbps system requirements not only demand a well designed cable that minimizes loss; but also, for backplane applications, a high-density connector system capable of minimizing refl ections and crosstalk effects.
At Gore, we have been working with the industry’s leading backplane connector family manufacturers to develop cable assemblies to surpass the challenges of high data rate transmission. We offer a variety of comprehensive testing platforms for:
Our tests help to quantify fitness-for-use life testing of our materials to ensure we quantify that our products “do what we say they’ll do” first time, every time, all the time.
