PCIe Gen 5 connectors meet demand for high-performance computing
TE Connectivity (TE) has launched a new family of card electromechanical (CEM) connectors which are compatible with the new fifth generation of the PCI Express (PCIe) high-speed interface standard.
New connectors from TE Connectivity are backwards-compatible with earlier generations of the PCIe standard.
Data centers and communications equipment use PCIe Gen 5-compatible processors and servers to reach new levels of performance in cloud computing and other demanding applications. Now the new TE PCIe Gen 5 CEM connectors provide an interconnect solution which meets these applications’ need for high-speed data transfers and high signal integrity, offering data rates up to 32 gigatransfers per second (GT/s) over a differential signal pair.
The new connectors are backwards-compatible with PCIe Gen 4/3/2/1 products in both interface operation and footprint. They are supplied in various vertical surface-mount mechanical configurations.
