January 28, 2015 - FCI announces a successful error-free transmission at a data rate of 56Gb/s using duobinary encoding over a channel including the ExaMAX  High Speed Backplane Connector.

The 56Gb/s ExaMAX  High Speed Backplane Connector System features a beam-on-beam contact interface that minimizes the residual stub for improved signal integrity performance compared to typical blade-on-beam contact structure and provides exceptionally low mating force while maintaining excellent contact normal force. ExaMAX  combines speed, superior signal integrity performance, and low crosstalk while eliminating insertion loss resonances.

Designed to meet the requirements of next-generation applications, the 56Gb/s ExaMAX  High Speed Backplane Connector is suitable for hubs, switches, routers, optical transport servers, external storage systems, super computers and emulation equipment.
