Right angle PCIe connectors

16 July 2014 Interconnection

ERNI is complementing its 100 Ω PCI Express (PCIe) family with a new 85 Ω right angle connector series for situations when low clearance above a printed circuit board prohibits the use of vertical configurations.

The card edge connectors enable an add-on card to be mounted parallel to the mother­board, saving space in the overall height allowed within the chassis.

Designed to the requirements of the PCI Express architecture that calls for a high performance point-to-point full duplex I/O bus connector, the ERNI connector series meets all PCIe Local Bus Standards Rev. 3.0. The right angle connector’s footprint is identical to the standard vertical mount configuration.

The 85 Ω connectors come in X1, X4, X8, X16 and new X24 versions with stack heights of 5,84 mm and 11,18 mm in through-hole format. The 100 Ω versions come in X1, X4, X8 and X16 versions with three standard stack heights of 5,84 mm, 11,18 mm and 16,68 mm, also in through-hole format. New additions to both product families include longer terminal/tail lengths and 30 micro-inch gold plating options.

The connector pins are insert moulded into the connector to allow for exact registration of the contacts on both the daughter card side and the board mount side. The connector itself is moulded from a high-temperature plastic to allow the connector to withstand the higher reflow and IR temperatures required for processing lead-free components. The overall rugged construction of this connector makes it well suited for consumer, server and industrial applications.
