HALO Electronics, Inc. Announces The Highest Density Transformer For Backplane Applications

HALO is pleased to announce our highest density addition to our “Backplane Transformer” series. This new part, HALO P/N TG110-BP10NYNLF can be used as a 4 port 10/100 or dual port Gigabit Ethernet backplane transformer. This new device is another example of HALO’s leadership role in next generation magnetic solutions.

As the communications industry moves to higher speed data transport over the backplane there is an ever-increasing need for higher density transformers. HALO has developed a new family of low cost transformers that greatly reduce the real estate required for single and multi-port applications.

The “BP” series provides an enhanced, reliable, alternative to “capacitor coupled” backplane circuits by enabling the Auto-MDIX and auto-negotiation features of both current-drive and voltage-drive PHYs. This family is ideal in applications where new and legacy boards are connected to the same backplane. This BP series has been tested and confirmed by leading silicon vendors such as Broadcom™ and Marvell™.

10/100 transformers are available in single and dual port configurations for daughter cards. Quad port, octal and 10 port devices are available in a single package for controller/switch boards. Gigabit solutions are available in single, dual, quad and 5 port packages.

The TG110-BP10NYNLF is RoHS compliant and Green (Lead Free). Data sheets, samples and pricing of this proprietary family of products are available under NDA (non-disclosure agreement). Samples are available from stock to 3 week lead-time. Please contact your local HALO representative or distributor for more information.
