PRODUCTS

USB 3.2 Type-C to SMA Breakout Board

The SS-USB3.2C-SMA breakout board is designed to test everything USB, from USB-2.0 up through dual-lane USB-3.2. It incorporates a standards compliant USB Type-C connector (plug or receptacle boards are available) on one end of the printed circuit board and 20 GHz SMA connectors on the other end of the board. High-speed transmit and receive signals are routed to the SMA connectors via 50-ohm microstrip transmission lines over Rogers RO4350 low-loss dielectric for excellent signal integrity at frequencies up to 30 GHz.

Price: $725.00

Weight: 0.5lb.

Dimensions: 3.8in. × 5.5in. × 0.75in.

SFP+ to SMA Breakout Board

The SS-SFP-SMA breakout board is an SFP+ Host Compliance Test Board (HCTB). It incorporates a standards compliant 20-pin SFP+ "gold finger" board-edge connector on one end of a printed circuit (PC) board and high-speed SMA connectors on the other end of the PC board. High-speed transmit and receive signals are routed to the SMA connectors via 50-ohm microstrip transmission lines over Rogers RO4350 low-loss dielectric for excellent signal integrity at data rates up to 11Gbps or more. Low-speed signals Tx_Fault, SDA, SCL, Mod_ABS, and Rx_LOS are routed to standard 0.1 inch header pins. Tx_Disable, RS0, RS1, VccT, and VccR are routed to test points and include LED indicators. The breakout boards enable test, debug, and development of SFP+ links.

Price: $495.00

Weight: 0.25 lb.

Dimensions: 2.5in. × 4in.

USB-3.0 to SMA Breakout Board, Plug or Receptacle,
   - Standard configuration includes 4 SMA connectors (TX and RX pairs)
    - Optional add-on 4 monitor SMA connectors (for 8 SMA connectors total)

The SS-USB3-SMA breakout boards incorporate a standard USB-3.0 type-A connector on one end of a printed circuit (PC) board and high-speed SMA connectors on the other end of the PC board. Super Speed 5Gbps pins are routed to the SMA connectors via 50-ohm microstrip transmission lines. USB-2.0 signals (VBUS, D-, D+, and GND) are routed to standard 0.1 inch header pins. The breakout boards enable test, debug, and development of USB-3.0 links.

Price: $375.00

Weight: 0.25 lb.

Dimensions: 3.5in. × 2.5in.

Serial ATA (SATA) to SMA Breakout Board
   - Standard configuration includes 4 SMA connectors (TX and RX pairs)
    - Optional add-on 4 monitor SMA connectors (for 8 SMA connectors total)

The SS-SATA-SMA breakout board incorporate a standard SATA male connector on one end of a printed circuit (PC) board and high-speed SMA connectors on the other end of the PC board. High-speed 50-ohm controlled impedance microstrip transmission lines of matched length connect the SATA pins to the SMAs.  The breakout boards enable test, debug, and development of SATA links. The optional monitor connections split off a small portion of the signal, allowing monitoring of the signals on an active SATA link.

Price: $345.00

Weight: 0.25 lb.

Dimensions: 2.5in. × 2.5in.

Sinc Squared was founded in 2012 as a side business by full-time professional signal integrity engineers in Portland, Oregon. The first product was a USB-3 to SMA breakout board that was inspired by continual need for such a device at our full-time employer. Sinc Squared continues operation as a part-time home-based business that is committed to quality products and excellent customer service.

 

Our purpose is to provide high-quality multi-gigabit test fixtures and reference designs that help accelerate the adoption of broad-band digital communications protocols such as USB-3.0, SATA, Ethernet, HDMI, and PCI Express. Products are designed by seasoned signal integrity engineers with 20+ years of industry and standards committee experience. Particular attention is focused on meeting or exceeding all physical-layer standards, precise impedance-matched transmission lines, deterministic jitter budgets, and ease of use. All products are designed and built in the USA.
