FCI Introduces Mini-SAS HD Internal I/O Product Family For SAS 2.1 And 3.0 Applications
FCI introduces its internal Mini-SAS HD product offering, that includes board connectors and cable assemblies, for applications that require SAS 2.1 (6Gb/s) and SAS 3.0 (12Gb/s) protocol signalling. This product family extension now satisfies hardware applications that would require either external I/O systems (with EMI provisions) or internal I/O systems.The
The mating Mini-SAS HD internal cable assembly features internal Mini-SAS HD to Mini-SAS HD cable configurations and internal Mini-SAS HD to Mini-SAS legacy cables. Compliant to either SAS 2.1 or SAS 3.0 include full compliant sideband signaling for low speed signal transmission. The high-speed signal utilizes 3M’s planar twin-axial raw cable. 3M’s raw cable allows for either straight or right angle cable routing without signal performance degradation.
“The Mini-SAS HD internal board connectors and cable assemblies fulfills system designer needs for a high speed and robust internal SAS compliant, both SAS 2.1 and SAS 3.0, interconnect system” stated Jim David, HSIO portfolio director for FCI. “This product family addition is very complementary and identical in performance with the Mini-SAS HD external board connector and cabling system that has previously been introduced to the market. This allows FCI to offer customers a comprehensive next generation fully SAS compliant interconnect system be it for an external application or an internal one”.
The Mini-SAS HD board connector is fully compliant to the SAS 2.1 and SAS 3.0 specification and allows for a seamless transition from 6Gb/s to 12Gb/s signal speeds. Internal Mini-SAS HD cable assemblies are offered in 4i and 8i configurations on the Mini-SAS HD end of the cable assemblies as specified in SFF-8643. The cables also offer two sideband signaling patterns - “controller to backplane” or “controller to controller”.
Samples of the board connectors or cable assemblies are available upon request from FCI.
