It also provides a maximum current-to-space ratio packaged in a low profile, 10.00mm (.394") tall housing design that enhances system airflow.

"As systems become more complex, board designers need more options," said Ken Stead, manager of new product development, Molex Incorporated. "Molex is providing engineers with a variety of options, including plug, right-angle and vertical receptacles, as well as an assembly that allows modules to be arranged in any configuration and to make larger circuit sizes."
