TE Connectivity Introduces 192 Gbps Internal Mini-SAS Connector and Cable Assembly

New high density, high speed interconnect SAS 2.1 and SAS 3.0 specifications adopted; saves valuable PCB and cable routing space 

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania – July 20, 2015 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, today introduced its new internal Mini-SAS high-density (HD) connector and cable assemblies—a high-speed interface capable of transferring data at 192 Gbps (12 Gbps x 16 lanes). The product is designed to be 30 percent smaller than conventional SAS interconnects, increasing linear board density and saving coveted PCB space. The interconnect has been adopted by SAS 2.1 and SAS 3.0 specifications and supports a broad range of speeds up to 12 Gbps.

TE’s internal Mini-SAS HD connector and cable assemblies are compatible with a variety of architectures in multiple applications including enterprise storage, high-performance computing and networking. “As the market for higher density and higher speed interconnects grows, TE remains committed to delivering the most innovative and efficient solutions across various applications,” said Bowen Yu, product manager, TE Data and Devices. “Our internal Mini-SAS HD interconnect is one example of TE’s engineering innovation, with industry leading performance and flexibility bundled in a miniature interface.” 

Other features and benefits of the internal Mini-SAS HD connector and cables include:

•       0.75mm contact pitch

•       Faster installation with press-fit termination, pre-assembled one-piece connector and keying for proper plug orientation

•       Screw-mounted design for additional retention

•       Composite flat 30AWG twin axial cable with side bands

•       Short 18mm straight and right angle cable connectors

•       100 ohm and 85 ohm impedance cables

TE’s family of Mini-SAS HD products includes connector and cable assemblies for internal and external SAS applications. For more information about TE’s internal Mini-SAS HD connector, please visit  www.te.com/products/minisashd
