Rugged board-to-board connectors for industrial and embedded vision applications introduced by Samtec

March 13, 2024
Connectors resist pull and shear force with available weld tabs within the standard part number configuration.

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – Samtec Inc. in New Albany, Ind., is introducing ERF6 and ERM6 Edge Rate board-to-board connectors for 56-gigabit-per-second PAM4 high-speed, rugged mezzanine applications for industrial, embedded vision, instrumentation and monitoring, drones, and robotics.

These high-density mated set connectors are half the width of previous designs and offer a low-profile 5-millimeter mated height. The ERF6 and ERM6 have two rows of pins while maintaining 2.5-millimeter body width.

Body length of these board-to-board connectors is 11 to 42.8 millimeters with a 0.635-millimeter centerline. Available positions for each row are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60.

If pull and shear force are a concern, weld tabs are available within the standard part number configuration. The connectors allow 0.9 millimeters of nominal contact wipe for a reliable connection.

To ensure connectors are consistently aligned, polarizing features are molded into the connector body. ERF6 and ERM6 connectors allow for angular and linear misalignment.
