Original Press Release:
Samtec Introduces New Direct Disk Drive To Board Connectors
Samtec has announced a complete line of Storage Combo(TM) connectors for direct disk drive-to-board in many non-PC based applications. These combination signal and power connectors eliminate the need for the flat ribbon cables and power wire harnesses that are commonly used when connecting hard drives. They are PCB mountable with straight through-hole, right-angle, reversed right-angle and edge-mount tail configurations. These interfaces mate to IDE/ATA hard drives (SCID Series) SCS12 hard drives (SCS2 Series) and Wide SCSI hard drives (SCWS Series).
Storage Combo(TM) connectors offer a number of benefits:
- cost reduction, with one Samtec connector effectively replaces a minimum of two IDC connectors, two wire harness connector assemblies, two mating headers, flat ribbon cable and individual wiring, as well as assembly labor
- improved electrical performance, especially in RAID and mass storage systems where a short signal path from the disk drives to the main board is essential
- space savings, through direct connection to the target board which eliminates the extra space normally required for bulky wire harness assemblies. Pricing begins at .10 cents per line.
