HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TE Connectivity will be a key exhibitor at DesignCon 2013, taking place January 29-30, 2013, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California. TE will showcase their copper and fiber optic connectivity solutions to enable the next wave of 400 Gbps to terabit communication and networking equipment.

"As system architects and designers think about their next-gen needs in terms of throughput, density and cost-effectiveness, they weigh both copper- and optic-based solutions," says Nathan Tracy, TE Data Communications industry manager. "Our live demonstrations at DesignCon will illustrate how we are working to accelerate such critical decisions using copper, fiber optics or both to enable the next terabit system."

Several demonstrations will feature TE's latest 25-40 Gbps STRADA Whisper backplane connector—one of the first connectors that can effectively help to realize terabit and beyond architectures. Attendees can also view live presentations of TE's Quareo product that adds intelligence and managed connectivity to a network's physical layer.

TE Principal Engineer Chad Morgan, DesignCon 2012 award-winner, and TE Signal Integrity Engineer Megha Shanbhag will deliver a co-presentation titled Beyond 25 Gbps: A Study of NRZ and Multi-Level Modulation in Alternative Backplane Architectures. This technical session will take place January 29 at 2 p.m. in Ballroom F.

Also on display will be TE's broad range of copper and fiber optic connectors and cables—including a full portfolio of products for InfiniBand, IEEE, Fibre Channel, SAS standards and more—as well as circuit protection products. Industry experts will also be available to discuss how to rethink and remodel current architectures for next-gen communication systems.
