Bel Magnetic Solutions, a Bel group company (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) specializing in the design and manufacture of the company's MagJack Integrated Connector Modules (ICM), has introduced new single-port and eight-port 2.5GBase-T MagJack ICMs.
The company says these new ICMs offer a cost-effective solution for upgrading end-product performance to multi-rate, NBase-T Ethernet standards.
The ICMs are compatible with all new multi-rate Ethernet PHYs and are suitable for use in: next-generation 5G cellular equipment; low density, 2.5GBase-T Ethernet switches; high bandwidth 2.5GBase-T network interface cards; NBase-T compliant products; and industrial controls equipment.
Bel Magnetic Solutions’ 2.5GBase-T ICMs are backward compatible to slower speeds and use industry-standard footprints and pinouts. The 2.5GBase-T part doubles product speed and bandwidth at nearly the same cost as 1GBase-T solutions, notes the manufacturer.
The single-port and eight-port 2.5GBase-T MagJack ICMs are in stock with electronics distributors including Arrow, Digi-Key, Mouser, Newark, and Farnell. Common part numbers include: L829-1J1T-JM; L836-121T-KD; L8BJ-1K1T-KDE; and 0854-2X4R-JD-F.
