You can’t talk about technology without mentioning the need for increased bandwidth and high bandwidth connector design.
On the hardware side, many say we are facing the limits of what we can do with the tried-and-true technologies that have been the foundation for technology innovation thus far — chips, laminates, boards and elements associated with them.
Addressing increased bandwidth requirements requires a systems-level approach. Those systems are defined by the hardware elements noted above. We have reached the point where any discussion regarding the “systems-level approach” for next generation hardware technology development has to include interconnects and cable assemblies as key elements within the design puzzle.
Brian discusses the strategies, tactics and components necessary to design interconnects that can effectively achieve higher bandwidths and not be bottlenecks in high speed systems.
