LISLE, Ill. -- January 31, 2013

Molex Incorporated introduces its SpeedStack™ Mezzanine Connector System, a
high-density, low-profile solution that supports data rates of up to 40 Gbps
per differential pair. The system is ideal for OEMs that contend with limited
PCB real estate in a variety of industries including telecommunications,
networking, military, medical electronics and consumer technology. The mated
stack heights of 4.00 to 10.00mm along with a 0.80mm pitch provides design
engineers with the ultimate in flexibly to address space constraints without
sacrificing performance. The product will be on display at DesignCon 2013,
January 28 – 31, Santa Clara, CA, booth 109.

“The marketplace has a great need for a versatile, high density,
board-to-board mezzanine solution that provides space savings and high data
rates, as well as optimal airflow despite a low stack height,” said Adam
Stanczak, new product development manager, Molex. “The Molex SpeedStack
connector system not only delivers a low-profile, high-speed solution, but it
was specifically developed with a narrow housing design to allow airflow and
promote system cooling.”

The SpeedStack Connector System comes in multiple circuit sizes of 22, 44, 60,
82, 104 and 120 with a range of 6 – 32 differential pairs for even greater
flexibility. The 100 Ohm design provides superior impedance control with an 85
Ohm version to be released in June 2013 that will support PCIe* Generation
(Gen) 3.0 and Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) requirements for
next-generation I/O and memory signalling. The insert-molded wafer design
includes a protective shrouded housing, providing support to the terminal
location and improved electrical balance. A common ground pin helps improve
electrical performance and minimize cross talk.
