Sullins: PCI Express® Card Edge Connectors
Edge-card connectors.
San Marcos, CA — Sullins Connector Solutions, Inc. is offering a full series of PCI Express' (PCIe) card edge connectors to enable easy and cost effective implementation of PCIe architecture in desktop computers, communications equipment, workstations, and factory automation equipment. Highly reliable and durable, these connectors fully support the PCIe standards for signal and power as well as auxiliary signals at the interface between the motherboard and add-in card.

The 1.00mm pitch, one-piece parts have slots that accept 1.58mm (0.062-in.) thick add-on graphics cards for user upgrades and support x1, x4, x8, x16, x24, and x32 contact positions to accommodate an extensive range of bandwidth requirements. The connectors are engineered to optimize both design flexibility and manufacturing efficiencies as devices are provided in a wide range of termination types and mounting styles.

The parts' serial lanes are comprised of two differential wire pairs that support a data transfer rate of 500MB/s in each direction, per lane. They also use a 2.5GHz clock rate, and a 5GT/s (gigatransfers per second) bit rate.

The connectors are suitable for an array of dense packaging, board-to-board applications requiring the connection of a mother board to a 1.58mm (0.062 ±0.008-in.) daughtercard.
