The Z-PACK HM-Zd Connector System is a high speed, differential connector system, which is compatible with the Z-PACK 2mm HM Connector Line. Z-PACK HM-Zd Connector provides Z-PACK 2mm HM Connector users with a migration path for serial switching applications from 3.125 Gb/s to 10+ Gb/s.
The Z-PACK HM-Zd Connector System features a highly reliable dual beam contact system with fully encompassing grounds dedicated to each differential pair. In addition, the Z-PACK HM-Zd Connector footprint is optimized for both routability and system performance with the use of a 1.50 x 2.50 [.059 x .098] row to column grid. The connector design features a robust mating interface with integral pre-alignment and polarization built into the mating interface.
Standard 10A right angle header
Z-PACK HM-Zd Connector is an extension of the Z-PACK 2mm HM product line
Designed specifically for high speed differential applications
A modular connector system with a standard module size of 25.00 [.984]
Contact pitch is 1.50 [.059] within a pair and 3.00 [.118] pair to pair within a column; column to column pitch is 2.50 [.098]
Card Pitch is less than 20.32 [.800] for 2 pair and 3 pair headers and 25.40 [1.000] for 4 pair headers
Optimized footprint for improved electrical performance and ease of trace routing (unobstructed routing channels on both daughter-card and backplane)
Pin header and receptacle have the exact same footprint to simplify PC board layout
Designed to meet Telcordia requirements
