Board-to-board connectors for high-speed applications
The floating board-to-board connector system of the HF301 series from Yamaichi is a solution for connecting two PCBs. The floating mechanism allows for the smooth functioning even during shock and vibration. The HF301 is therefore intended for use under difficult environmental conditions.
International standard for M12 push-pull inner locking
The push-pull version of the M12 connector with inner locking from Yamaichi Electronics is an M12 push-pull design, which has been defined as an international standard (IEC 61076-2-012). Therefore, M12 push-pull design-ins are possible now for M12 push-pull systems, without using proprietary solutions.
Extension of the Yamaichi push-pull connector series
Yamaichi Electronics is continuously extending the Y-Circ P product portfolio. The latest versions are sockets with angled contact outputs. Different versions were designed. Sockets with exposed angled contacts and angled sockets with housings for improved signal shielding are available.
Push-pull connector with protection rating IP68
The waterproof T-series of the Y-Circ P push-pull connector family from Yamaichi Electronics has now been qualified for up to 5,000 mating cycles. In addition, the connectors are now available in size 09, 12, 15 and 18.
Taking the next innovation step in the field of M12 connectors
With the M12 push-pull with inner locking, Yamaichi is taking the next innovation step in the field of M12 connectors. The cable-side connector engages into the device socket from the inside with locking hooks. As a result, the push-pull system requires only the same installation space as a common M12 connection with screw locking. With this technology, it is possible to completely insert the M12 socket into the device, e.g. to integrate it ...
Field-mountable connector for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications
Yamaichi Electronics has expanded its Y-Circ M12 product portfolio with a new field-mountable connector for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications. The new connector is suitable for use in typical CAT.6A applications, e.g. in the communication cabling of automation control systems.
Y-Con RJ45 Jack-7x with magnetics, light pipes and tab-up
A reflow-capable RJ45 jack is available in the industrial Y-Con RJ45 series. The socket for 100Mbit/s basically consists of a base body with 90° orientation of the connector to the solder pins, along with the 'Tab-up' tab orientation. The individual types vary in features to ensure that the right product can be selected to meet customer needs. The jack optionally has machine-wound transformers, additional integrated power contacts and re...
High speed connector system offers direct locking feature
Suitable for several markets such as industry, automotive, and data networking, Yamaichi Electronics has launched a new 0.5mm pitch high-speed transmission FPC connector. The main features include the ability to transmit up to 20Gbps, the compact design and the direct locking feature for the FPC. The first advantage is the high-speed ability. Using Yamaichi Electronics' original FPC called YFLEX the system is able to transmit ...
Connector enables 400Gbps Ethernet applications
Yamaichi Electronics provides CFP high-speed connectors for hot-pluggable optical transceiver form factors to enable 100 and 400Gbps applications. Yamaichi Electronics has developed a new connector for the recent CFP8 specification for 400Gbps applications. It is compliant with the CFP MSA Multi-Source Agreement. The company claims that the CFP8 connector is one of the few connectors on the world market able to achieve the transmission rate of 40...
Hermaphroditic push-pull connector has easy assembly
Having introduced its B series to the market, Yamaichi Electronics' S series is now available with a hermaphroditic connector. The S series, like the B series, is implemented in protection class IP50. Yamaichi Electronics is continuing to develop the push-pull circular connector series Y-Circ P.
Kelvin test contactors ensure reliable testing of smartphone ICs
Yamaichi Electronics presents Kelvin test contactors in QFN, SOP and QFP packages for use in the lab and on the test floor. The arms race in thin and lightweight, but still powerful consumer devices such as smartphones relies on high integrity of sensitive functions on a semiconductor component. For the semiconductor manufacturer to be able to guarantee that functionality, the test equipment has to be correspondingly powerful.
56Gb/s connector system suits analogue coherent optics & CFP2 modules
Yamaichi has developed a CFP2 56Gbps host and plug connector system for analogue coherent optics modules or CFP2 modules requiring reliable high-speed performance. This connector system is able to support applications using 25Gb/s x 10 channels or 50Gb/s x 4 channels.
Yamaichi offers HDMI interfaces for all five versions
The HDMI interface (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a well-known product on the market. First developed in 2004, it has already moved up to specification 2.0a and is available in a total of five different versions/types. Versions A, B and C are the older connector type standards. The base version A has 19 contacts, version B (on request) is for high-resolution transmission with 29 contacts and C is the 19-pin mini-version.
Universal IC test sockets suit different package types
Suitable for different package types, making them versatile, flexible and universal, Yamaichi Electronics has announced the IC561, IC564 and NP584 series test solution sockets. The miniaturisation and integration process of state-of-the art IC components is leading the major electronics manufacturers to use many different package solutions. For the multitude of different package types there is often no standard solution available.
CAT6A expands Yamaichi's M12 & push-pull connector offering
Yamaichi Electronics continues build out its Y-Circ M M12 product series and Y-Circ P push-pull circular connector series with a CAT6A version in each series.
