Meritec’s HPM (High Performance Metric) 2mm cable assemblies take you to the next performance level without taking you to the cleaners. The innovative design features a strain relief without overmolding, a slightly inductive contact and the most reliable form of wire termination. In addition, Meritec offers shielded backshells for EMI applications and our inter-modular shields feature programmable ground positions. Our design incorporates a wide range of performance cable and customizable features, which allows you to specify an interconnect system that will provide the superior performance you require for your system.
With today’s systems requiring more speed and increased bandwidth, we redesigned our strain relief system to eliminate overmolding of the cable. Overmolding of the cable can cause impedance spikes and unwanted reflections that can impair the system’s performance. Our welded terminations form a molecular bond between the wire and our contact. There is also no added capacitance from the use of solder, and our weld monitors provide manufacturing SPC. Meritec’s creative design minimizes the strip length of the wire at the termination point to maintain the cleanest impedance environment throughout. When you add it all up, the Meritec HPM-5 assembly provides the best and most consistent combination of low loss, cross-talk, skew, capacitance and controlled impedance.
