Design guide features new flex circuit line

12 March 2003 Interconnection

Samtec has published a new Design Guide for its line of flex circuit interconnects. Capabilities range from standard and high-speed data links to completely custom circuits populated with traditional Samtec connectors.

Current custom capabilities include single and double-sided circuits and multilayer circuits. Maximum panel size is 300 mm x 450 mm with tin, hard gold, nickel or HAL solder finishes. Presently, Samtec offers 3mil line width/spaces. Shielding is also available to limit EMI and ESI. A variety of stiffeners may be added to reinforce the circuit for use with customer-added or Samtec provided interconnects.

Printed versions can be ordered. Standard high-speed data links (HFEM Series) are available with a choice of shielded flex cable lengths and may be terminated with single-ended or differential pair connectors. Double-sided Mini-Edge card data links (MEJ1 Series) can terminate to a variety of connector styles (MEC1 Series) including vertical, right-angle and edge mount designs.

'Paper doll' samples (e-files representing the form and fit of the design) are available within 24 to 48 hours, says Samtec, and samples ship within 5 days of design/layout approval.
