Omnetics has released a High-Speed Protocol Guide showcasing its latest range of connectors.

The guide shows how the connectors can be used with many high-speed application stands such as Camera Link, HDMI, Ethernet (CAT5/5e/6/6e) and USB 3.0.

We live in a digital world. From phones to tablets to automobiles, digital electronics are everywhere. 

Our world is so strongly shaped by digital electronics that analog electronics are often considered a thing of the past. 

This perception, however, is untrue. In fact, every piece of digital information was at some point converted from an analog signal. 

The relationship between digital and analog signals must be understood in order to interpret many of the latest high-speed connector specifications. Since there is no standard method for specifying connector high-speed performance, some connectors are specified as analog frequencies (MHz/GHz), while other connectors are specified as digital data rates (Mbps/Gbps). This often leads to much confusion among those who are trying to procure the proper connector for their application.

Omnetics have tested some of their standard products such as Micro-D’s and Nano-D’s and found that they can be used with many high-speed application standards such as Camera Link, HDMI, Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet.   Measurements taken to compare Omnetics connectors to HDMI and USB 3.0 connectors show that Nano-D’s out performs HDMI and Micro-S’s outperforms USB3.0.
