InfiniBand... Ultra 320... SATA... SAS... Fibre Channel... 10Gb Ethernet... SONET... LVDS all part of today's alphabet soup of standards for data and telecom interconnect. Amphenol Spectra-Strip's mission is to enhance the signal fidelity and extend the life of copper cable for these critical high bandwidth data transfer applications, and to provide exceptional customer value in the form of enhanced performance and lower total applied costs for the Information Processing and Telecom markets.
Today, much exciting new technology is currently being developed to extend copper's usable length for high data rate applications, both in datacom and telecom. The reason: copper presents significant opportunities for interconnect cost savings over fiber optics due to the conversion costs from electrons to photons and back. This new technology revolves around driver signal pre-emphasis, equalization, and cable / connector / termination technology that minimizes skew, crosstalk, and EMI. These copper interconnects demand cables with exacting control of transmission line properties, far beyond typical Cat 6 structured wiring requirements, due to the gigabit signals being driven. They also demand low cost models for the high volume, competitive marketplaces they serve.
