For server, LAN on motherboard, and storage markets
July 23, 2012 —Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a provider of electronic components, launches a new industry-leading high-speed 10GBASE-T (10 gigabit over twisted-pair) integrated connector module (ICM) for the server, LAN on motherboard, and storage markets. The module is a critical component in the 10GBASE-T ecosystem which is currently being deployed in enterprise and cloud data centers.
Pulse Electronics’ new JT4-1120HL 1×1 10GBASE-T ICM supports Ethernet speeds that are 10x faster than previous generations of Ethernet over twisted pair technology. Pulse ICMs are tuned to have flat insertion loss curves and excellent return loss performance over 10GBASE-T frequencies. This performance enables the longest possible cable reach available. The modules meet industry standard IEEE 802.3 and PCI Express (PCIe) mechanical requirements for a low profile package. The advanced design helps 10GBASE-T system designers meet electromagnetic control system requirements such as FCC Part 15 class B for high speed devices.
“Upgrading from existing 1-gigabit to 10-gigabit twisted-pair Ethernet connections is a cost effective and logical solution for data centers equipped with twisted-pair Ethernet cable,” explained Chad Oblak, product manager, Pulse Electronics. “The design of Pulse’s high-speed magnetics optimizes the ICM so it achieves maximal reach while meeting PSD (power spectral density) and EMC requirements simultaneously.”
Pulse Electronics designs and manufactures 10GBASE-T integrated connector modules and discrete magnetic solutions and provides application design expertise and support. Pulse works with server, storage, and Ethernet switch manufacturers, as well as silicon vendors, to provide ICM solutions that support 10-gigabit per second transmission speeds within the 10GBASE-T ecosystem.
Samples and prices are available upon request. Delivery is about 8 weeks.
