Board-to-board connector with extremely low stacking height
Kyocera has announced its new 5655 Series electronic board-to-board connectors optimised for high-speed data transmission, featuring a 0.5mm-pitch and a stacking height of just at four millimetres, reportedly among the world’s thinnest for this class of connector.
Samples are now available globally upon request, and Kyocera will exhibit the new connectors at electronica India 2019, an international trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications to be held from September 25th through 27th in Delhi, India (Hall 11, Booth #EG01).
In recent years, the development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and deployment of connected vehicles has greatly expanded the scope of automotive electronics. In several major markets, including the US, Europe, and Japan, tests of self-driving vehicles are currently taking place on public roads. The commercialisation of these autonomous driving systems will require highly miniaturised automotive electronics to be mounted on limited available space within the vehicle.
Kyocera’s new 5655 Series connectors feature a stacking height of just 4mm, and a proprietary floating structure optimised for high-speed data transmission. The connectors are also available in larger dimensions to serve a wide range of design requirements.
The connectors’ dual-point contact structure ensures excellent contact reliability. Furthermore, the connectors’ mold structure reduces breakage when connecting or disconnecting to ensure superior durability. The new 5655 series is designed for use in advanced equipment including millimetre-wave radar and LiDAR to detect vehicles and pedestrians; e-mirrors; navigation systems; and driver monitoring cameras. The connectors can operate in extreme temperatures from -40 to +125°C, and they comply with the MIPI D-PHY standard (2.5Gbps) for high-speed transmission interfaces.
