Samtec’s new ExaMAX® Direct Mate Orthogonal (DMO) solutions offer system designers flexibility by removing the mid-plane, allowing fabric cards and line cards to mate directly. This fast-growing system architecture increases airflow and improves thermal efficiencies throughout the chassis. DMO solutions enhance signal integrity via shorter trace lengths and less connector transitions while streamlining the system BOM and optimizing system cost.
Samtec’s ExaMAX® DMO system consists of the new EBDM-RA series which mates directly with existing EBTF-RA series. They are currently available in 6 pair and 6, 8, 10, and 12 columns. Guide pin and screw mount options are also available.
