High Speed Serial Interconnects

The serial I/O interface offers significant advantages as a high-speed storage interconnect. With standard interfaces and the flexibility of serial modules come options for various data rates and protocols. We have been a leader in the development of storage I/O standards and continue to be engaged in new interface standards. TE is an industry leader with the technical expertise required to deliver superior designs for signal integrity at higher data rates.


In Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drives (SSD) for personal computers, our SATA connectors offer point-to-point link with hot-plugging capability and a wide range of height and orientation options. In mainstream servers and enterprise storage systems, our SAS connectors support dual porting capability with faster spindle speeds and transfer rates of up to 12Gbps. In data center storage and switching systems, our internal Mini-SAS HD connector offers a 12 Gb/s high-density, high-speed interface capable of supporting an aggregate data rate of 48 Gb/s per connector (12G x 4 lanes) with a version capable of transferring an aggregate data rate of 192 Gbps, in a design approximately 30% smaller than conventional internal Mini-SAS connectors. With TE High Speed Serial Connectors, you get a high-performance design from a company that is a leading presence in developing storage I/O standards and new interface standards.
