Passive Equalizer contacts operate up to 12.5 GBPS and fits inside a standard Size 8 twinax/quadrax contact cavity for all connector formats. The passive equalizer requires no external power and acts like a high pass filter operating over an extreme temperature range. This compensates for the frequency dependent cable loss and helps to re-open the eye pattern on long cable runs allowing to pass higher data rates, for a given cable length, or extend the length of your cable at existing data rates. Equalization is an important tool in any digital engineers toolkit.
Smiths Interconnect offers a complete series of connectors available to utilize the Quadsplitter technology with MIL-DTL-38999 Series, combining the signal integrity of Twinax cables and the connection density of Quadrax.
