Molex expands triad connector family

Looking to help customers save board space and achieve bandwidths up to 5Gb/s, Molex has introduced its new Triad Differential Pair (TDP) cable assemblies. The TDP cable assemblies complement the company's existing TDP connector product line, offering customers a complete interconnection system. This one-stop solution is well-suited for a variety of applications, including displays, routers, storage devices, switches, portable DVI devices, HDTVs and other entertainment displays, automotive displays, custom applications requiring high speed electrically characterized I/O solutions, and more.

The TDP connector system is a shielded, dual row, 1.27mm (.50-inch) centerline pitch product with a cable-to-board interface that offers high speed and controlled impedance. Using a triad design of differential signal and ground lines, it is able to achieve bandwidths beyond 5Gb/s with 5000-cycle durability. The TDP cable assemblies are available in sizes of 18, 28, 38, 48 and 72 circuits and have two optional jackscrews (4/40 and M3) to ensure reliable mating retention. They are offered in multiple differential pair configurations up to 24 pairs and in standard lengths of 1m (3.28-inch) and 3m (9.84-inch); however the cables can be customized to any desired length up to 5m (16.40-inch).
