One Piece, Spring-Loaded Compression Array


Samtec's SCA Series, one piece compression interface, utilizes H-Pin® spring style technology to achieve mating cycles in excess of 500,000. Ideally used as a micro, low-cost alternative to the pogo pin, it offers extremely high densities when compared to traditional one piece interfaces. The SCA Series is available with up to 320 pins on 1mm (.0394") pitch. This equates to 432 I/Os per square inch compared to 80 I/Os per square inch with the more rugged SEI Series.

Features:
  • One piece compression connector with H-Pin® touch point technology
  • Micro, low-cost, pogo pin alternative (0,70mm contact deflection is equivalent to a similar height pogo pin)
  • High density: 320 I/Os in .74 sq.in. (432 I/Os per square inch)
  • High cycle (virtually limitless)

    Performance and Specs:
  • Pitch: 1mm (.0394")
  • I/Os: 20 x 4, 20 x 8, 40 x 4, 40 x 8
  • Stack Height (compressed): 3,60mm (.142")
  • Bandwidth: 25 Gbps
  • Inductance: 0.93 nH
  • Mating Cycles: 500,000+
  • Current Rating: 1.1 A (8 pins powered)
  • Working Voltage: 235 VAC
  • Initial Contact Resistance: 28 mO
  • Initial Mating Force: 31 lbs. (320 pins)
