ETTERS, PA. (September 22, 2005) ¡X FCI a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems, has developed a product catalog specifically for the communications, data and consumer markets. Highlighting major product families, features and typical applications, the catalog provides an overview of the company¡¦s principal backplane, input/output, and board-to-board connectors.
Available now from authorized distributors or directly from FCI, the catalog features more than 40 connector families including newer products such as SAS (Serial-Attached SCSI) drive interface connectors, vertical memory sockets for FB-DIMM modules, Densi-Shield I/O"§ high-speed external I/O connectors, ExpressCard"§ host and module systems, HDMI connectors, and press-fit PCI Express"§ card edge connectors.
Product pages provide features, main products, application examples, part reference numbers, images and a link to product-specific landing pages within FCI¡¦s Web-based interactive catalog.
