SAMTEC's Q2 second generation high speed connector system (QMSS/QFSS Series) options have been expanded with power pin options, positive alignment features, edge-mount designs, and single-ended and differential pair signal routing.
EMI shielding is now optional for applications that require the increased insertion depth and other rugged features this system offers without the grounded side shields.
This micro-rugged high speed system has signal pins on .635mm (.025") pitch and 11mm (.433") mated height. It is available with up to 160 I/Os per connector set in a single-ended configuration and up to 64 pairs in a differential pair configuration.
It is hot-pluggable with the shields and ground plane mating first followed by the signal pins. Application specific options allow three stage hot-pluggability.
