Filed Patents and Patent Pendings
Xmultiple 4,978,317 US Patent was the founding patent
for RJ connectors with integrated LEDs. Our many patents
and on-going patent filings show we have innovative technologies
in the electronic marketplace as well as the connector
and interconnection solutions industry.
802.3 Published Standard and the Xmultiple 4,978,317 US
following overviews below are short explanations of some
of the features of our patents and patent pending technologies.
For our protection the wording used in these overviews
is not the exact working used in the patent pending fillings.
Ethernet Univeral Connector
10GB Universal UltraMag connector is an RJ connector which
has the capability to have different 10GB transformer
components integrated. The transformer components are
easily inserted and removed with our patent pending design.
The wide area on the back of the Universal is designed
with enough room to house any 10GB transformer in the
marketplace. Also integrated inside the Universal UltraMag
is a printed circuit board with a locking mechanism so
the transformer can be inserted and then locked in place
on the PCB. We have multiple 10GB semiconductor companies
who are providing their transformers for integrating their
transformer into an RJ45 connector housing. Our XFZT 10GB
transformer, integrates into the universal connector as
well. The advantage of our Universal 10GB solution is
the integration the transformer and connector results
in a higher level of EMI protection. The shield surrounds
the 10GB component and the RJ45 connector providing this
protection. The other major benefit is that the component
and RJ45 contacts mate inside the RJ45 connector thereby
reducing EMI compared to solutions where the component
and connector are separated and connected by traces on
the printed circuit board. The longer distance to make
this connection between the component and connector is
much more critical in higher speed 10GB transmission.
The Universal UltraMag is the best way for the component
and connector to perform for 10GB.
major benefit of our design of the Universal 10GB RJ45
connector is it permits users to insert and remove components.
A user of our Universal 10GB RJ45 connector has the capability
to purchase 10GB transformers from multiple sources. Second
sourcing reduces leadtimes. There is also the advantage
of removing failed components without expensive repairs.
When you add up all the advantages you can see that our
universal solution will be embraced by many users.
Ethernet Plugs and Cables -
U.S. Patent 6,764,333
10 Gigabit Ethernet GigaPlug is designed with insulation
displacement terminal technology for each wire located
in the RJ45 plug. The insulation displacement terminals
are individual metal shields for each wire to eliminate
crosstalk and EMI. A 10G RJ45 plug style with internal
shielding of the pairs is the next generation of RJ45
plug. Only the very last tip of the wire is exposed for
termination. Reduces cross-talk in the RJ Male Plug and
increase performance as a result. With the GigaPlug, high-speed
10G Ethernet performance is made better by the use of
a shielded RJ male plug. This male plug connector can
be manufactured in two ways.
Ultra GigaPlug version with 16 to 20 contacts, 8 to 10
on top and 8 to 10 on the bottom. This version would need
a Ultra Giga Female RJ Jack to work.
Standard GigaPlug - Would work with a standard CAT 5,
5e, 6 jack. but with the addition of the internal shielding.
new Gigabit technology makes connecting Gigabit Ethernet
networks a better connection for homes and businesses.
We want to bring Xmultipleˇ¦s new technology to your attention.
Our company, Xmultiple is well known for our 3,498,317
for integrating LEDs into RJ connectors.
To use GigaPlug connectors is easy. Simply connect the
GigaPlug at the end of your twisted pair wiring by inserting
the each wire through its metal shielding. The metal sheet
in the male plug will prevent cross-talk between each
individual wire in the connectors. It is as easy to connect
as a standard RJ45 connector.
