HALO® Announces the First IEEE802.3 Compliant 25G/40G Isolation Transformer for 25G and 40G Ethernet Applications

Santa Clara, California (May 6, 2021) – HALO Electronics Inc., a leading supplier of Ethernet Transformers, today announced the preliminary release of the industry’s first commercially available IEEE802.3bq compliant high-speed transformers.

Utilizing the UWBX patent pending technology, HALO® has been able to achieve the high-speed performance needed to meet the OCL, Cross Talk, Insertion Loss, Return Loss and CDMR performance required for a fully compliant 25G or 40G Ethernet port over copper cables. This UL recognized product is available for evaluation under non-disclosure agreement (NDA) effective immediately.

To read more about the unique relationship between HALO and UWBX please see the “High Speed Data Transformer Technology” press release dated January 21st, 2020.

This same proprietary transformer technology will be used to develop many ultra- high frequency galvanic isolation transformer products, which were not possible in the past, using traditional transformer construction techniques.

HALO Electronics, Inc. has been a technology leader in the communications industry since its inception in 1991. This technology investment expands HALO’s leadership role in the communications industry.

HALO Invests in Next Generation High Speed Data Transformer Technology Capable of 3.7GHz Bandwidth

SANTA CLARA, CA January 21, 2020 — HALO Electronics, a leading supplier of Ethernet transformers, invests in UWB X Limited, a U.K. based technology company focused on creating a new high-speed transformer technology. As part of HALO’s ownership stake, HALO will have exclusive use of this patent pending technology with manufacturing at HALO’s UL and IATF recognized global production facilities.

The technology that UWBX has developed will change the way we think about standard Ethernet transformers and will push the bandwidth ceiling to a level not achievable from traditional transformer technology,” says Jeff Heaton, HALO’s V.P of Technical Marketing.

Andrew Ackland, CTO of UWBX and inventor of this technology, says “Having invented some ground breaking transformer technology, UWB X is very excited to be working with HALO, a magnetics vendor of world renown, and look forward to jointly exploring new horizons in magnetics and seeing the results taken from the lab to reality to make a real impact in the world.

With this technology, HALO intends to develop 25/40G (IEEE802.3bq) magnetics as well as galvanic isolated Multi Gig BASE-T1 (up to 10G over a single pair) transformer solutions for next generation high speed Ethernet applications.

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.
