High speed

Your needs

Size and weight reduction of systems and the increasing demand for faster data exchange rates in telecommunication networks have driven the need of high-speed electronics and passive components.

As a result, System Designers face extensive challenges, most notably in the preservation of the integrity of high-speed signal integrity through system stacks.

The design of high-speed system requires technology offering the greatest data rate for each architecture level (boards, contacts, connectors, cables) to maximise communication speeds. No matter the market, the application nor the nature of the signal to be transmitted (RF, Ethernet, optics, single-ended, diffy pairs,...) Amphenol remains the one-stop solution provider.
