Pulse Electronics Introduces I/O Connectors

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Dec. 11 -- Pulse Electronics Corporation, a leading provider of electronic components, introduces four input/output (I/O) connectors that meet the standards and fulfill the demands of high-performance computing such as cloud computing, data centers, enterprise servers, the switch market, and consumer electronics. The SATA III, PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0, USB 3.0, and Thunderbolt are a new generation of high-speed connectors that operate at frequencies ranging from 5Gbps to 10Gbps.

The SATA III connector is popular as a storage interface supporting server, desktop/mobile PC, hard drive, and HD DVR applications. PCIe 3.0 can support up to 8Gbps and is used in the expansion cards that interconnect with server, switch, router and desktop applications.
