Newark/element14 Stocks FCI Products

CHICAGO — Newark/element14, a leading multi-channel, high-service electronics distributor in the Americas, and a business of global Premier Farnell, announced today it was stocking FCI's XCede® vertical backplane headers and right-angle daughter card receptacles.

Offering 25Gb/s performance, the XCede® connector system provides engineers with a clear long-term migration path for the equipment platforms they design that will need to evolve in the future to enable higher speed signaling and higher levels of performance.

XCede® connectors address requirements for higher linear signal density at the backplane or midplane interface and also provide the ruggedness and long-term reliability required in today's high-end systems. The use of advanced engineering polymers in a resonance-damping shield eliminates crosstalk resonances and enables very low crosstalk across a wide frequency range.

“This is a very relevant and exciting new product for the high-speed backplane market and we are pleased to bring it to the attention of design engineers,” said Jeff Uden, VP Product Management, Newark/element14. “More new technology products that target communications, data, industrial and medical applications can be found at”

An engineer from FCI is available for technical chat and the FCI line is available for same-day shipping at
