SAMTEC has added three cable termination options to its D-subminiature connector offering. For high-speed applications, the company offers 15 and 25-position plugs (DHSC series) with micro coax data rate cable.
The 2.1dk 38 AWG cable has a 300mA current rating with a 4.5ns/m propagation delay. Each wire us individually shrouded, and the full cable is shrouded again and encased in a metal backshell for rugged reliability. This cable assembly is suitable for high-speed connects up to 3m in length.
Discrete wire D-subs (DSXD series) and flat IDC cable D-subs (DCXD series) are available both as components for customer assembly and as finished cable assemblies. Both sockets and plugs are available with nine, 15, 25, and 37 positions as standard.
An optional diecast metal backshell is available for the discrete wire system. This makes it suitable for use in high-vibration or high-shock applications. Integrated strain relief is standard for the IDC version to protect the contact integrity in multiple mating/unmating cycles.
Samtec offers a full line of high-speed, high-density, and other I/O connector solutions as standard or custom cable assemblies.
