Product Description

The STRADA Whisper backplane family was designed with customers’ needs for high-performing, high-bandwidth systems in mind, offering data transfer at blinding speeds of 25 Gbps and unparalleled scalability up to 40 Gbps, enabling efficient future system upgrades without costly backplane or midplane redesigns.

The entire STRADA Whisper product family is characterised by extremely low noise, low insertion loss and little to no skew—all of which provide system architects with design flexibility and high design margin.

It is available in specific 100-Ohm and 85-Ohm versions so there is no need to compromise on impedance discontinuities.

The STRADA Whisper connector family differentiates itself from competing products through folded signal pins surrounded by strong, protective C-shaped shields, making the product family one of the most robust offerings in the market.

Additionally, the connector footprint keeps crosstalk down and the overall connector design uses latest eye-of-needle (EON) technology.

Applications include Servers and Storage; Switches; Routers; Optical Transport and Wireless infrastructure.
