ERNI’s 10 Gbit/s MicroSpeed Blind Mate connector housing comes along with thicker side walls and is manufactured of high impact resistant thermoplastic UL94 V-0 rated LCP. The housing provides two polarised guide elements for alignment and secure mating. MicroSpeed Blind Mate connectors are available from Erntec .
MicroSpeed Blind Mate connectors are offered in an arrangement of Board-to-Board stack heights from 5mm to 20mm while providing every height in between in 1mm increments.
The modular and shielded SMT signal connectors are available with 2 rows and 50 pins and offer a wide-temperature range (-55 °C to +125 °C). While the signal contacts are made with SMT termination, the engineer can select between two termination options for the enveloping shielding depending on the application: SMT or Through Hole Reflow (THR) for extra heavy cards or extra maximum mechanical stain relief.
In addition, SMT signal co-planarity is 100%, less than 0.10mm on all contacts. With a minimum of 500 mating cycles, the signal and power connectors are engineered for every application concern, including severe vibration.
The signal connector‘s longitudinal pitch of 1.0mm and transverse pitch of 1.5mm allows the differential or single-ended signals to be arranged horizontally or vertically to meet specific impedance requirements. Optimised crosstalk behaviour is achieved through a variety of layout configurations and is supported with test data.
The MicroSpeed connector places no restrictions on the number of mated connectors used between two boards. By providing generous misalignment tolerances on the longitudinal axes of ±0.8mm and transverse axes of ±0.7mm, MicroSpeed connectors can be strategically placed on the PCB to keep copper traces as short as possible while reducing unnecessary and costly board layers.
MicroSpeed connectors are supplied in tape and reel packaging. They have black insulator housings for fast and reliable visual recognition and a pre-mounted pick-and-place cover for easy assembly onto the PCB.
