Sullins Intros Bi-Level Card Extenders
Bi-level card extenders.
San Marcos, CA — Sullins Electronics has expanded its connector offering specifically engineered for use in high temperature applications. The new bi-level card extenders are the latest addition to the company's growing portfolio of edgecards expressly designed to satisfy the requirements of high pin count, high-temperature applications where space is limited.

Presenting 0.050-in. (1.27mm) contact center spacing, the devices are an appropriate replacement for 0.100-in. (2.54mm) center spacing parts as their use doubles the number of contacts within the same area while ensuring the reliability and integrity of the connectors' electrical performance. Their construction has both primary and secondary engagement contact areas, with the second area recessed within the card slot. Parts may be ordered in straight or right angle versions to permit design flexibility.

Manufactured with BeCu (beryllium-copper) pins with PPS/PA97 insulators for -65°C to +150°C applications, or with phosphor bronze pins with PPS/PA9T insulators for applications requiring an operating temperature range of -65°C to +125°C, the new connectors facilitate the interconnection of 0.062-in. ±0.008-in. daughtercards. Thus parts may be specified for use in burn-in ovens, as well as in backplanes, power converters, and power supplies in applications including communications, medical equipment and instrumentation, and automotive R&D.
