AirBorn MicroQuad  is designed to handle high-speed LVDS

AirBorn MicroSI is suitable for differential serial buses.

MicroQuad 

Micro-D 1394 IEEE 1394, Ethernet MIL-DTL-83513 Connectors 

The AirBorn microQuad product line is designed to meet requirements for Signal Integrity IEEE 1394 Ethernet applications, while still delivering reliability customers have come to expect from AirBorn. MicroQuad delivers flexibility in design by offering vertical and right angle board mounts plus cable I/O configurations. MicroQuad is designed to handle high-speed LVDS like IEEE 1394, Ethernet 100 Ωdifferential Quadrex. The MIL-DTL-83513 (Micro-D) qualified contact system and metal shells ensure ruggedness and durability. The versatile product ranges from on to ten high-speed modules and up to fifty signal contacts. 

Features and Benefits

•      Field-tested – four independent tine, gold plated contact system offers superior performance and reliability

•      Versatile product offering both genders of vertical, right angle board, and cable

•      Rugged metal shells and hoods

•      Shell-to-shell EMI interface gasket

•      Shell ground independent of signal pair grounds

•      Balanced lengths within pairs limit skew

•      9 sideband connections included
