Hermaphroditic connectors reduce costs and increase flexibility

9 March 2005 Interconnection

Samtec hermaphroditic interface systems feature polarisation to prevent incorrect mating and audible 'clicks' to verify proper seating on 0,635 mm, 2 mm and 2,54 mm pitch. These connectors are self-mating and therefore can reduce inventory costs by reducing the number of part numbers that must be stocked.

For micro pitch applications, a system on 0,635 mm pitch (LSS Series) provides full shrouding, board spacings from 6 to 12 mm, and up to 100 I/Os. On 2 mm pitch, a fully shrouded system (LS2 Series) provides up to 60 I/Os and board-to-board spacings from 9,65 mm to 13,71 mm. Right-angle, surface mount, and application specific designs are available for other board-to-board applications. The 2,54 mm pitch system (LST Series) provides up to 60 I/Os and a board-to-board spacing of 13,60 mm. It features Samtec's Tiger Buy contacts.
