Z-Pack 2 mm HM Type A/B Offers Guidance
HARRISBURG, Pa. - October 22, 2007 - Tyco Electronics has introduced the Type A/B variant of the Z-PACK 2 mm HM (Hard Metric) connector system. The connector is a two piece board-to-board interface with a daughter card to backplane connection. Tyco Electronics' Type A/B connector offers the guidance ability similar to the Type A connector, but also utilizes the center three columns for additional signal pin capability as located in the Type B connector.
With the addition of the three-column signal pins within the connector, the Type A/B connector is essentially a combination of the two standard products designed for higher density. The A/B connectors are available in a five-row configuration with 95, 110, and 125 signal pins. The male connectors mate with Type A/B right-angle female connectors and are end stackable without change in the contact pitch. The Type A connector has 110 signal pins with center guiding and keying facility. The Type B connector has 125 signal pins, but does not include the center guiding and keying facility.
As electronic developments are increasing the demands on system performance, connectors can no longer be considered as discrete components, but as part of a total electrical design. Tyco Electronics' Z-PACK 2 mm HM connector system is used in high-end stations, graphic work stations, servers, super computers, wireless interfaces, high-end network systems, high-end CPU testing, telecom hubs, and military "dark" programs.
In addition to standard applications, Tyco Electronics offers 5-row, 5+2 row, 8-row, 8+2 row, 12-row, short tail length, and feed-through versions. The 5+2 row version is used with females with ground return shields and contacts in rows z and f in addition to those in the 5 row version. Also, polyester film tail guides can be fitted to feed through posts to aid assembly to the board. Materials include glass filled polyester gray housing with a UL94 V-O rating. The Z-PACK 2 mm HM interconnection system complies with the requirements of IEC 917 and IEC 61076-4-101. Tyco Electronics 2 mm HM connectors are intermateable and interchangeable with other industry standard versions that meet IEC specifications.
