August 11, 2011 — Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces its new 10GBASE-T (10 Gigabit over twisted -pair) integrated connector module (ICM) for servers, LAN on motherboard (LOM), adapter cards, and storage devices. This new 1×1 RJ4510GBASE-T platform is halogen free and RoHS compliant and offers customers a choice of multiple LED configurations and EMI tab options.
It meets PCIe mechanical requirements and supports the latest 10GBASE-T physical layer device (PHY) technology and applications.
“We expect market demand for 10GBASE-T Ethernet magnetics to increase as businesses and data centers rely more on server virtualization and as computer processing speed continues to increase,” said Chad Oblak, product manager, Pulse Electronics. “Pulse Electronics has been a leading 10GBASE-T magnetic supplier and at the forefront of innovations for 10 gigabit Ethernet for many years. Our new connector module helps satisfy market demand for faster data connections between servers and for storage devices.”
Pulse-designed 10GBASE-T products meet or exceed IEEE 803.an requirements and are tuned to have flat insertion loss curves and excellent return loss performance at high frequencies. The PHY-side return loss up to 400 MHz meets or exceeds return loss requirements. A low insertion loss over the 1 MHz to 400 MHz band allows for longer cable reach. This new platform is designed to help meet tough EMC system requirements such as FCC Part 15 class B.
In addition to the new 1×1 platform, Pulse currently has a wide selection of 10GBASE-T discrete magnetic products in production. Pulse is currently working to release a 2xN (2 to 16 port) ICM targeted to the high-end switch market. Pulse Electronics continues to be proactive in developing products that are safe for the environment and reduce potential health risks.
The connector modules are packaged in trays. They are priced at approximately $8.50 each with volume discounts available. Samples and prices are available upon request.
