2mm boardmount pin header RA SMT.
Austin, TX — Printed circuit board manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies now have a lower cost option for small form factor board-to-board connectors and box headers. 3M Electronic Solutions Division has introduced the Board-to-Board Stacking Connectors and Box Headers, Series 95X for high-volume applications.

Expanding the 2mm board-to-board and wire-to-board solutions from 3M, the new 95X Series offers a lower cost, 10µ-in. gold solution for high-volume applications with less stringent requirements for the number of mating cycles, no exposure to temperature extremes or hostile atmosphere. It is intended for such industrial applications as control units, consumer electronics such as home appliances, handheld test and measurement devices and computing market segments. The new connectors and headers are qualified in accordance with European requirements for IEC Performance Class 3 items and meet the current requirements of both the EU and China RoHS legislations. They are also high temperature for lead-free processing up to 260°C.

In addition to the new 95X series, the company offers a broad range of 2mm and 0.100-in. board-to-board and wire-to-board connector solutions and molded assemblies that provide high reliability and performance for applications with more stringent requirements for mating cycles and extreme operating conditions.
