ERNI Electronics has expanded its 1.0mm MicroSpeed connector family to include a two-row 90° version in addition to the standard vertical male and female connectors designed for typical Mezzanine applications. The new right angled MicroSpeed connectors support data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s and include the company’s double-sided spring contacts and complete shielding of the top and bottom sides. The 90° connectors enable compact connections from either backplane to daughter cards or coplanar connections from one daughter card to another. The modular and shielded signal connectors are available intwo2 rows with 50 pins, and operate across a wide temperature range (-5 °C to +125°C). The signal contacts are built with SMT termination, and are also equipped with two termination options for the enveloping shielding depending on the application; SMT or Through Hole Reflow (THR) for extra heavy cards or extra mechanical strain relief. SMT signal coplanarity is 100 percent guaranteed at less than 0.1 0mm on all contacts. The signal connector‘s longitudinal pitch of 1.0 mm and transverse pitch of 1.5 mm allows the differential or single-ended signals to be arranged horizontally or vertically to meet specific impedance requirements.
