Impact 100 Ohm Backplane Connector System

Pushing the density envelope to meet next-generation high-speed application demands, Molex's Impact 100 Ohm backplane connector system features data rates up to and beyond 25 Gbps, superior signal integrity, electrical performance, and modular design.

The Impact 100 Ohm backplane connector system provides data rates up to and beyond 25 Gbps and superior signal density up to 30 pairs per cm (80 differential pairs per inch) when using a 6-pair system. The broad-edge-coupled transmission technology enables low cross-talk noise and high signal bandwidth while minimizing channel-performance variation across every differential pair within the system.

Impact XTR connectors provide OEM’s a scalable solution, (managing speed, density, and cost; pay-for-performance model), without requiring any footprint or mating backplane connector changes from legacy Impact connectors. Impact power modules are offered in three through six pair sizes in conventional, coplanar, and mezzanine configurations with current ratings from 60.0 to 120.0 A per module.

Designed for traditional backplane and/or midplane architectures, the Impact 100 Ohm backplane connector system meets the growing demand for next generation high-speed applications.
