Next Generation Form Factor is Here
The M.2 Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) product line is a natural transition from the mini card and half-mini card to a smaller form factor in both size and volume. WiFi, Bluetooth, global navigation satellite systems, near field communication, hybrid digital radio, Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig), wireless Wide Area Network, and solid-state storage devices. It also adds functionality to PCIe Gen 3, SATA 3, SATA I/O, and USB 3.0. The new, smaller form factor is suitable for applications in new thin platforms.
- 0.5mm pitch with 67 positions
- Designed for both single- and double-sided modules
- Available in various keying options for module cards
- Support PCI Express 3.0, USB 3.0, and SATA 3.0
- Choice in height, position, design, and keying option

PCB Spring Contacts
Spring finger contacts (also known as shield fingers, grounding springs, universal ground contacts, or clips) can be used in all types of small printed circuit board applications across all industries. It can be used for antenna feeds, low voltage electrical connections, or for grounding to prevent EMI noise and static caused by a speaker, motor, microphone, or any other vibration within an application
