New Connector Mates to Itself to Simplify Inventory
Save time and costs associated with qualifying new parts for a design
June 20, 2017
Harrisburg, Pa. – June 20, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, announced today its new portfolio of 0.5mm fine pitch board-to-board connectors that feature a hermaphroditic design that mates to itself, reducing inventory product mix with consolidated part numbers and components. This also helps save time and costs associated with qualifying new parts for a design—instead of a header part and a receptacle part for each connection, there is only one part number.
“With a high operating temperature, these connectors perform reliably in demanding environments. This makes them suitable for applications such as industrial, military and motor vehicles,” said Lily Zhang, product manager at TE Connectivity’s Data and Devices business unit. “Our connectors feature a stub-less contact interface supports PCIe Gen 3 compatibility at up to 8 Gbps data rates. Housings are available in UL94V-0 flammability-rated LCP material.”
0.5mm fine pitch hermaphroditic (FPH) connectors also feature a dual point contact design that provides better mating precision and reliability than the single point contact design found on most surface mount (SMT) connectors. Four guidance posts help ensure easy mating, even when there is mis-alignment.
0.5mm fine pitch hermaphroditic connectors from TE are available immediately.
