SAMTEC’S Tiger Eye contacts are multi-finger, precision stamped and formed, Beryllium Copper contacts that are heat-treated to optimise spring properties for maximum cycles in high reliability applications.
These contacts are available in .050" (1.27mm) pitch and .0787" (2mm) pitch connector sets and in IDC cable systems.
They have been tested at up to 10,000 cycles with optional Palladium Nickel plating.
Lower cost Phosphor Bronze Tiger Eye lite versions are also available with many of the same features.
Connector families include polarised and shrouded systems (SFM/TFM Series), friction lock systems (SFML/TFML Series), right angle systems (SFMH/FSH Series) and four row systems (ROLC/FOLC Series).
They can be specified with either surface mount or though hole terminations with a variety of lead counts and as many as 200 I/Os.
Cable systems (FFSD/TCSD Series) are available with mating shrouded ejector headers on .050" (1.27mm) pitch and .0787" (2mm) pitch with locking caps for added durability.
