Like previous solutions, this new version complies with the SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) Small Form Factor Technology Work Group’s SFF-TA-1002 specification, and is among the most robust, cost effective, and highest performing solutions on the market.

Sliver cabled receptacles for SFF-TA-1002 enable card-edge and cabled applications supporting riser card, cable, SSD drive, and custom design connectivity. They support high speeds through PCIe Gen 5 with a roadmap to 112 G. The dense 0.6-mm pitch of the connectors also supports next-generation silicon PCIe lane counts where current products in the market begin to max out. The cable assembly solution connects chip-to-chip, card-to-card, or card-to-chip.

“As system speeds increase and designs become denser, design engineers are looking for products that provide speed as well as flexibility inside the box to connect to cards or chips” said Ann Ou, product manager at TE Connectivity’s data and devices business unit. “Our new Sliver cabled receptacles and cable assemblies for SFF-TA-1002 support high performance while combining signal and power into one cost-effective solution for ultimate flexibility.” To learn more about TE’s Sliver cabled receptacles and cable assemblies for SFF-TA-1002, click here.
