Neoconix Inc. announces the release and immediate availability of its high-speed Y-Beam™ interconnect technology. The Y-Beam technology was developed specifically for ultra-high-speed applications running at 28Gbps, 56Gbps, and beyond, and can be implemented with NRZ or PAM-4 signaling. The Y-Beam products have a mated thickness of only 0.40mm, resulting in an extremely short signal path with minimal insertion loss. For 100Gbps PAM4, the magnitude of measured insertion loss at the Nyquist frequency is less than 1dB, making Y-Beam an ideal solution for many high speed applications.
With high-density arrays down to 1mm pitch, Y-Beam offers an ideal combination of density and performance, with alternate pitch options also available. Leveraging nearly all of the same design flexibility as Neoconix’s PCBeam™ technology, the Y-Beam™ offerings are available with extensive customizability and low NRE. The connector is solderless and fully separable, allowing for disassembly and reassembly as needed.
By providing separation with minimal loss, the Y-Beam technology can enable more modularity at the system level, simplifying system architectures and providing better cost efficiencies. Implementations can include onboard optical modules, high speed flex-to-board connections, and other interconnects requiring high-speed, high-power, and an ultra-low profile. Neoconix provides Y-Beam products as stand-alone products as well as integrated into flex circuit assemblies.
