High Density Interconnect

High Density Interconnect

When small spacing and performance are critical, high density interconnects (HDI) are required. High-density designs and advanced cabling solutions from our interconnect partners support high-performance test and measurement applications to 90 GHz and beyond! High-density, space-saving designs enable smaller evaluation boards and shorter trace lengths while optimizing performance.

Richardson RFPD offers HDI solutions from Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CoreGD™, CoreHC™ and Card Edge products) and HUBER+SUHNER (MXPM and MXP products).

Carlisle CoreGD™

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies’ CoreGD™ is a high-performance, multi-port, interconnect system that offers excellent signal integrity for complex layouts that can be integrated into custom, hybrid RF, digital and power interconnect solutions to meet uniquely demanding requirements.

It is a low-cost solution optimized for applications with demanding bandwidth up to 65 GHz, pushing the envelope up to 100 GHz.

Carlisle CoreHC™

CoreHC™ 2.5 mm pitch, multichannel, test-point system targeted for high-density boards. Vertical mount attach eliminates the board-side connector or interposer with a direct connection between the traces and pads on the PCB footprint and the compression pins on the cable assembly. Optimized footprints and layouts are available upon request.

The 2.5 mm solution is designed for demanding bandwidths up to 65 GHz. Standard products are available in single-, 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, and 10-channel configurations.

Carlisle CoreHC™

CarlisleIT’s Card Edge surface and edge mount connectors contact system is designed for high-speed, high-density applications. These connectors have a 0.8 mm pitch and are suitable for cable-to-board and board-to-board applications with various PCB thickness profiles supporting data rates up to 32 Gbps with excellent signal integrity.

In addition to increased durability and extended lifecycle, they offer superior electrical performance (e.g., lower insertion loss, low return loss, and perfect impedance matching) compared to similar contact systems.


HUBER+SUHNER MXPM and MXP multi-coax connector lines are the perfect fit for performance, speed and density. MXPM supports up to 90 GHz/E-band with a 2.54 mm (0.1 inch) pitch, magnet-mount connection, delivering performance, reliability and value. Broadband return loss and insertion loss characteristics over the entire bandwidth, and tight phase matching to +/- 1ps of the highly flexible and ultra-stable Multiflex cable assemblies, guarantee best-in-class signal integrity for data analysis of up to 112 Gbps.
