25 Gbps Connector Addresses High-signal Transmissions
Molex Incorporated added the CoEdge to its EdgeLine family of connectors. The one-piece, 25 Gbps connector is configured to meet an industry standard pitch of 0.80 mm (.031”). This low-profile, dual-sided, edgecard connector supports 16 PCB thickness variations with multiple circuit sizes for high-speed, industry-standard, edgecard applications. CoEdge connectors ensure PCBs are aligned at the center line to allow for a uniform signal path across the length of the connector. Keying and locking features are provided to secure the connector to the PCB and improve board alignment during mating. Application tooling is not required, allowing for easy board installation.
