Low Profile SMT Connector from Advanced Interconnections
Low profile connectors.
West Warwick, RI — Mezza-pede 1mm SMT Connectors from Advanced Interconnections Corp. are designed for 1mm pitch micro board-to-board and flex cable-to-board applications. The screw-machined, low profile connector is well suited for high reliability applications such as providing power to a tunable laser, since the connector passes mixed flowing gas (MFG) tests.

With a mated height of only 4mm, the connectors are suitable for mezzanine board applications where z-axis space is a constraint. The patented pin and lead frame design is fully surface mountable and features screw-machined terminals with multi-finger contacts with a per contact current rating of greater than 1 Amp at 80°C. An over-molded lead frame seals the surface mount pins to prevent solder wicking and ensures a solid solder joint at the PC board level. Precision molded from high temperature LCP, the RoHS compliant, two-piece connector system is fully compatible with lead-free solder profiles.

Standard sizes include dual row 8- and 14-position models with other pin counts and optional enhancements such as shrouds for polarized mating available on a customized basis. A thru-hole header is also available. The product is packaged in tape and reel for automated assembly.
