MINNEAPOLIS, USA: Omnetics' Nano miniature connectors are designed and connected to impedance-controlled cable systems to provide high-quality signal integrity for high-speed Gigabit signal processing needs between components and systems in highly rugged environments.

Less space and lower weight are additional benefits when using the nano-miniature connectors. Previous versions of micro-connectors at .050" pitch, and even larger Mil-spec-circular connectors such as 38999 have been used, but are holding back the miniaturization as well as the overall portability of many systems.

Omnetics employs its standard line of nano-sized Bi-lobe connectors at .025" pitch that are mated with high-speed cable using differential signal hook-up methods that include dedicated drain wires to achieve the highest speeds possible.

Up to and over 2 Gigabits per second are being achieved as cable lengths are maintained at a minimum length, and impedance matching is managed to retain the best possible performance. The key to achieving good performance lies within a unique wiring methodology, precision processing of the interface between cable and connectors, as well as through the understanding of high-speed digital transmission technology.

Significantly higher-speed digital speeds can be achieved by using custom design and layouts provided by Omnetics engineering.
