January 25, 2018

HARRISBURG, Pa. – January 25, 2018 –  TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, today announced its high density (HD) card edge power connector, which delivers among the highest current density in the market to support high power supply applications.

TE’s new HD card edge connector delivers higher current than previous power card edge connectors at 25A/contact with low resistance, and supports 1500-2000W power supplies for data center equipment. With a maximum operating temperature of 130 degrees Celsius, the connector provides reliable performance in harsh environments. In addition, the signal pitch is 1.27mm (compatible with common industry PCB footprint designs), and the elasticity of the power/signal pins provides low mating force.

“Current density and power requirements in servers, switches and storage devices are increasing, and the industry demands solutions that can meet those needs in demanding environments,” said Bandy Yuan, product manager at TE Connectivity. “TE’s HD card edge connector is a solution that addresses the requirements of networking device manufacturers for next generation equipment.”
