The range provides efficient and reliable processing, supporting surface mounting of this industry-standard interface connector in a wide range of applications. A compact, high-performance interconnect, it is available in 9- to 37-position plug and socket variants, and with a full choice of mounting hardware options. Based on a standard footprint, it does not restrict developers to single-sourcing.
Key features of the connector include a carefully-controlled centre of gravity, ensuring stability of the part during and after placement. The range is fully pick-and-place capable using standard vacuum methods, without requiring force. Furthermore, large mounting brackets on the connector provide grounding and exceptional mechanical retention.
With a low, 3.6 mm mounting height, the range helps save valuable space between circuit boards. It also employs 0.8 µm gold-plated contacts.
