Sullins' New Cantilever Edgecard Connector Series

Board-to-Board Connectors Allow Easy insertion and Robust Connections
for 0.062" Multi-Layer PC Boards

San Marcos, CA, October 15, 2007...Sullins Electronics, Corp., a global leader in the design and manufacture of 100% RoHS-compliant board level interconnect products, expanded its extensive portfolio of edgecard connectors to include a cantilever edgecard connector series engineered to provide high performance, low cost connections on 0.100" (2.54 mm) or 0.156" (3.96 mm) centerline boards. Designed to mate with the plated fingers of a 0.062" +/- 0.008" daughterboard, parts may be ordered rated to withstand +125, +150, or +175 degrees C continual heat. These double-row connectors are available with either 0.370" or 0.400" wide insulators, and are supplied in right angle, card extender, and straight lead configurations, as well as in a large range of sizes to afford maximum design flexibility and manufacturing efficiencies. Moreover, they boast superior electrical and physical characteristics, and are interchangeable with Sullins' high-profile devices, without the need to replace motherboards or daughterboards.

The PCB mount series' cantilever contacts offer a reliable connection in a wide array of high reliability, or high cycle mother-daughterboard applications requiring the connection of one printed circuit board (motherboard) to 0.062" daughterboards. They are ideal for use in communications systems, medical equipment, instrumentation, and automotive R&D. Notably, the high-temperature parts may be confidently specified for such applications as test and burn-in ovens.

The UL94-0 rated devices feature selective gold plating or overall gold and a current rating of 3 A per pin. They are available in 6/12 through 70/140 dual positions on 0.100" centerline spacing, and with 6/12 through 43/86 dual positions on 0.156" centerline spacing. Supplied with a choice of standard thermoplastic polyester, PA9T, beryllium copper, or phosphor bronze contacts, the series features an insulation resistance of 5000 megohms minimum, and a dielectric withstanding voltage of 600 VDC (on 0.100" centerlines) and 1800 VDC (on 0.156 centerlines). Connectors provide consistent insertion/withdrawal from part-to-part, and all-inclusive lot-to-lot with a low 8-ounce average insertion force, and a 1-ounce minimum withdrawal force per contact pair. A comprehensive selection of mounting styles, plating, and keying options, as well as customization is also available. To learn more about Sullins' cantilever edgecard connector series visit, and

While firm pricing is determined according to customers' specifications, average cantilever edgecard connector prices range from $0.15 to $0.30 per contact pair. Delivery is 3 to 4 weeks ARO.
