Samtec Introduces Rugged Edge Rate Interconnect Strips
Samtec has introduced a new line of rugged interfaces where Signal Integrity and durability are critical. They are available in parallel, perpendicular, and durability coplanar board stacking and cable-to-board applications where Signal Integrity and durability are critical. Featuring Samtec's rugged Edge Rate contacts, these systems offer superior impedance matching, reduced broadside coupling/crosstalk, low insertion/withdrawal forces, and high cycles.
The .8mm (.0315") pitch Edge Rate Terminal and Socket system (ERM8/ERF8 Series) offers up to 150 I/Os with stack heights from 7mm to 16mm. This system is robust when "zippered" during mating and unmating. This Edge Rate connector set has optional latching systems and extended guide posts that are ideal for blind mating and docking applications.
For perpendicular applications, the ERM8/ERF8 Series surface mount terminals and sockets may also mate with right angle terminals and sockets or edge mount terminals. The Edge Rate right angle terminals and sockets mate together for coplanar applications.
Also available is the mating .8mm (.0315") pitch, 50 ohm micro coax Edge Rate cable system (ERCDA Series). This system features Samtec's 34 AWG EyeSpeed(TM) ribbon cable and signal integrity optimizing "Direct-to-Lead" cable termination.
Mated line pricing begins $ .09 depending on position, cable length and production quantities.
