Samtec has announced a complete line of combination signal and power connectors that eliminate the need for the flat ribbon cables and power wire harnesses that are commonly used when connecting hard drives. The Storage Combo line is PCB mountable with straight through-hole, right-angle, reversed right-angle and edge-mount tail configurations. These interfaces mate to IDE/ATA hard drives (SCID Series) SCSI2 hard drives (SCS2 Series) and Wide SCSI hard drives (SCWS Series).
Storage Combo connectors offer a number of benefits:
* Cost reduction - with one Samtec connector effectively replaces a minimum of two IDC connectors, two wire harness connector assemblies, two mating headers, flat ribbon cable and individual wiring, as well as assembly labour.
* Improved electrical performance - especially in RAID and mass storage systems where a short signal path from the disk drives to the main board is essential.
* Space savings - through direct connection to the target board which eliminates the extra space normally required for bulky wire harness assemblies.
