TE Connectivity Sliver Internal Cabled Interconnects

TE Connectivity’s Sliver internal cabled interconnects allow for extended reach, more design freedom, and lower cost for high-speed IO connections. At the high data rates seen in servers, switches, and storage, exotic PCB materials are required to maintain signal integrity and reduce losses. TE Connectivity’s Sliver is a small, high-density cabled interconnect that supports data rates up to 25 Gbps with a low-loss cable and can lower power consumption and cost by eliminating retimers and the use of costly PCB materials. Sliver is available in vertical and right angle configurations for cabled and card edge connections, supports 85 and 100 Ω applications, and has a flexible pinout that allows for differential pairs and low-speed single-ended sidebands.

  • Connectors: Vertical and right angle, with active latch and metal housing
  • Impedance: 85 Ω, 100 Ω
  • Allows for mix of differential signal pairs and low-speed single-ended sidebands
