Meritec Releases the New Printed Direct Attach (PDA)

(Painesville, Ohio – October 22, 2010) Meritec releases to production the new Printed Direct Attach (PDA). In addition to Meritec’s original “Direct Attach” 4X/12X line of InfiniBand® cables the PDA is a more cost effective solution. While the Direct Attach line provided superior performance when compared to all other industry standard offerings, the PDA line meets or exceeds the same rigorous Industry standards at a more than competitive price. The signal conductors in the cable are directly attached to the printed circuit board which then becomes the direct interface with the contacts in the board receptacle.

The new PDA 4X and 12X assemblies are compliant with all SFF-8470 specifications and will interface with all SFF-8470 and SFF-8473 board receptacles. They meet or exceed the Infiniband and Ethernet Double Data Rate requirements.

A one meter 4X assembly is priced at $35.00 at 1000 pieces. Consult factory for additional pricing and lead-times.
