Connector system optimises available ports in PCI Express environments

This low-profile 6 GHz 75 Ohm dual port DIN 1.0/2.3 Connector provides high speed ports for applications such as 6G SDI broadcast and CoaXPress machine vision.

The design of this low profile dual port connector enables an enhanced packing density of connections on a standard PCI Express card. Cambridge Connectors has achieved this by combining the small format of DIN 1.0/2.3 style connectors with a diagonal mounting style.

Meeting SMPTE 424m standards these connectors have maximum reflection factors (VSWR) of 1.13 (DC-3.0 GHz) and 1.29 (3.0 GHz-6.0 GHz). Compatible with standard DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors, they come with a robust push/pull latching system which provides a secure, reliable interconnection. This makes it ideal for use in high density wiring environments where space is at premium and access can be limited.

Typical applications include UHD Video Broadcast, Process Control and CoaXPress Machine Vision.
