Are you looking to speed up your COM Express application? Colibri® connectors from ept deliver first-rate signal integrity even at 10 Gbps, making the COM Express connector system the top choice for your applications at these speeds and higher. They are ideal for PCI Express Gen3 applications with 8 Gbps or 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GBase-KR). S-parameters are available on request from ept for use in simulating your proprietary designs.
The Colibri® connector system stands out due to its rugged design and flexible usability. Both 220-pin and 440-pin versions for board-to-board distances of 5 and 8 mm are available. Colibri® is a double-row connector system consisting of a plug and a receptacle, each of which has a pitch dimension of 0.5 millimeters. They are processed using SMT technology, in other words, soldered directly on the circuit board. Colibri® single connectors feature 220 pins. The 440-pins version consists of two 220-pins Colibri® connectors which are held together through an assembling frame. The frame guarantees an exact positioning of the two connectors according to COM Express specifications and has to be removed after soldering.
ept gives its customers additional flexibility by offering Colibri® products that are compatible with all common connectors available on the market. The compatibility is proved by signal integrity tests performed by the Fraunhofer Institute, where Colibri® connectors reached excellent results - in comparison as well as in connection with other COM Express connectors.
Colibri connectors from ept meet all requirements of the PICMG COM Express®, SFF-SIG Core Express® and nanoETXexpress standards. They are delivered in Tape and Reel to facilitate fully automated processing.
