High Speed Q Strip® Connectors Now Available with Rugged Latching System
Samtec has broadened its High Speed product offering for rugged, Board-to-Board applications with the addition of an optional metal latching system for its popular 0.8mm (.0315") pitch Q Strip® High Speed Connector Strips. The new latch increases unmating force by 3 lbs and creates an audible click when properly mated.
This High Speed Q Strip® Header and Socket System (QTE/QSE Series) features an integral metal plane for power or ground rated to 10.1A at 95°C. Signaling may be routed single-ended with performance to 9 GHz, or differentially with performance to 8.5 GHz at -3dB insertion loss. The system is available in a choice of standard stack heights, from 5mm to 25mm, with application specific heights also available.
An alternate rugged feature to the latching system is a retention pin option which increases unmating force up to 50%. In addition, application specific guide posts, screw downs, friction locks, and board spacing standoffs are available. With optional Electro-Polished Selective plating, the QTE/QSE Series Q Strip® will also qualify for Samtec's Extended Life Products(TM) certification which includes 10 year MFG testing.
Pricing is $ .045/pin in small production quantities.
