So, my question is this. I've got four differential pairs from an LVDS chip which need to go to a connector, along with a few single-ended signals.
For this purpose, I chose a hirose df13 connector.
I found out today, however, that there exist connectors specifically meant for differential pairs (e.g. Samtec QTH-DP)
Is that really necessary for differential pairs? In general, is there some necessary characteristic I need to look for in the connector I use when it comes to pairs?
On the flip side, if I were to use something like the QTH-DP, can I send single-ended signals through it? Or would I require 2 connectors, one for pairs and one for singles?
