For over 30 years, Sanmina has been a technology innovator for both custom and standard backplanes. From advanced TCA or PCI-Express standard backplanes to the highest technology custom backplanes, OEMs depend on Sanmina’s design, materials and industry expertise to deliver a wide range of backplane solutions for networking, telecommunications and other products.
Our in-house technical resources have years of experience with high speed backplane design, layout, mechanical and thermal design, signal integrity, power distribution and advanced connector selection.
Our technology and designs are optimized for signal integrity and take into account distributed interconnect parameters and subtle EM effects, ensuring low noise and high performance throughout the entire interconnect system.
Sanmina provides quick turn and production backplanes including: UL® ready hybrid constructions integrating FR4, low-loss laminates, blind and buried vias, PTH signal integrity optimization, buried capacitance ®, thick-film resistors, and RoHS-compliant surface finishes.
With 30 years of backplane test experience, we provide our customers with a complete test environment including production VNA testing, RoBAT, flying probe, automatic optical inspection (AOI), X-ray and Testronics test capability.
Sanmina has high technology backplane fabrication and assembly facilities in North America, Mexico and Asia. Our facilities are compliant with key regulatory and safety standards including: ISO9001:2000, 14001, TL9000, BABT, ETSI, GMP, UL, CSA, Mil-PRF-5110/31032 and Mil-A-28870.
With smaller feature sizes and faster signal speeds; embedded passives are becoming more cost-effective.
