Evolving High-Speed Backplane Connectors

Published: November 2017

The market for high-speed backplane connectors continues to evolve. Although relatively few entirely new backplane connector families have been introduced over the last few years, existing flagship interfaces have continued to experience performance upgrades. In many cases, the manufacturers of these advanced connector families have spent this time implementing some fine tuning of their design as well as filling out their product family offerings to include midplane, orthogonal midplane, orthogonal direct and cable backplane options.

This Bishop and Associates research report analyzes the expanding role and market for high-speed traditional, midplane, orthogonal, cable, ruggedized, and fiber optic backplane connectors designed to perform in the 6 to 50+ Gb/s arena. The report reviews the basic technology underlying high-speed backplane connectors and outlines current and anticipated applications that demand them. Detailed analysis compares performance of high-speed backplane connectors from leading suppliers, as well as the challenges designers face in predicting connector performance in very specific applications. The report also reviews related system elements including driver and receiver technology, printed circuit board materials and design, as well as channel modeling, design support, second sourcing imperatives, and performance measurement systems.

What high-speed backplane connector type will see the most growth over the next five-year period? Will fiber optic backplane connectors see a breakthrough? Which region will see the greatest growth in high-speed backplane connectors and what type of high-speed backplane connector? Bishop’s new report – Evolving High-Speed Backplane Connectors – discusses, examines, and analyzes in detail these questions, providing forecast numbers by backplane type and region for the years 2016 through 2022.
