3M™ Ultra Hard Metric (UHM) Fully Shielded 2 mm Hard Metric Socket Connectors are engineered to deliver more than 7 Gbps backplane performance for systems based on 2 mm hard-metric connectors. System design engineers working with 2 mm hard-metric-based designs, such as VME or CompactPCI®, can now dramatically increase overall system performance while preserving their existing investment.
3M and Avnet Electronics Marketing are hosting a brief Webcast that will explore the following topics:
• Backplane design challenges and solutions
• UHM features and benefits
• PICMG Standard 2.30 for the J2 connector
• New PICMG 2.30 system slot and peripheral cards
• Support for legacy 2 mm HM system designs
In less than 14 minutes, you’ll gain an understanding of how standard Compact PCI and VME 64x systems can now support multi-gigabit, high-speed serial IO protocols such as SAS, SATA, Rapid IO, PCI Express and Gigabit Ethernet without costly backplane redesigns or forklift upgrades.
