SAMTEC now has three combination socket/terminal interface systems on 2.54mm, 2mm and 0.635mm pitch.
These hermaphroditic connectors are self-mating, and therefore can reduce inventory costs by reducing the number of part numbers that must be stocked.
All systems feature polarisation to prevent incorrect mating and audible "clicks" to verify proper seating.
The 2.54mm pitch system (LST Series) provides up to 60 I/Os and a board spacing of 13.6mm). It features Samtec's Tiger Buy contacts. Application specific designs are available for other configurations and spacings.
On 2mm pitch, a fully shrouded and keyed system (LS2 Series) provides up to 60 I/Os and a 9.65mm board-to-board spacing. Right-angle designs are available for perpendicular and co-planar board mating.
Application specific designs are available for other board spacings.
For micro pitch applications, a system on 0.635mm pitch (LSS Series) provides full shrouding and board spacings from 6mm to 12mm and up to 100 I/Os.
