Circuit Assembly Launches SCA-2 Product Line


Irvine, California (February 2002) - Circuit Assembly (CA) announces its new SCA-2 receptacles. SCA-2 (Single Connector Attachment-2) is a hard drive interface developed for SCSI and FC-AL systems - where devices make direct attachment with the backplane. The 80-pin receptacle supports the SCSI-3 protocol, while the 40-pin meets the Fibre Channel industry standard.

Incorporating power, options block and data signals into one single connector on the backplane, SCA-2 receptacles, along with the mating connectors, provide a substantial reduction in costs to manufacturers by eliminating the use of cables. With SCA-2,
manufacturers are able to use only two connectors compared to the previous twelve (three double ended cable assemblies and the mating connectors).

These SCA-2 receptacles consist of staggered contact heights which enable the hot-plugging feature. Alignment guides at both ends house the advanced grounding contacts and also allow blindmateability. SCA-2 receptacles are installed on a backplane
to mate directly with SCA-2 plugs installed on a disk drive.

Circuit Assembly's SCA-2 receptacles are available in two tail configurations - standard through-hole pin and press-fit compliant pin. Circuit Assembly offers both standard height and extended height for its through-hole pin configuration.

Headquartered in Irvine, California, Circuit Assembly Corp. has over three decades of experience as a leading developer of interface connectors and cable assemblies. The company delivers a host of interconnect products for multiple applications.
