Sponsored Contributed Article Samtec Expands Line Of Rugged, Micro Interconnect Products By Danny Boesing for Samtec, Inc. samtec, Inc. has introduced several micro pitch, rugged products for use in industrial, automation, robotics, energy, measurement and control, instrumentation, and medical industries. At the same time, Samtec continues to expand its leadership position in high speed, high density, micro pitch products and technologies. Optimize Signal Transmission Path To meet the interconnect challenges of tomorrow and beyond, Samtec has developed products and technology centers to help optimize the entire signal transmission path, from the IC to the panel and beyond, and all points in between. • Advanced Interconnect Design: Precision stamping, plating, molding, and automated assembly • High Speed Cable Plant: R&D and manufacturing of precision extruded micro coax and twinax cable • Samtec Microelectronics: Advanced IC packaging, and complete IC-to-Board design, application support, and manufacturing • Samtec Optical Group: Design, development, and application support of high performance Samtec has recently expanded its line of micro pitch discrete wire and sealed cable products, which are ideal for rugged applications where a highly reliable connection must be maintained. The micro pitch system increases contact density for greater space savings, and several feature Tiger Eye™ contacts, which are designed for high reliability and high mating cycles. New 0,8 mm Pitch Discrete Wire System optical engines, AO assemblies, and passive optical panel solutions. • Signal Integrity Group: Live EE support, 24/7, worldwide for full channel analysis, simulations, and break-out region design tools • Teraspeed Consulting: System design, signal integrity analysis and engineering, training The new SESDT Series Tiger Eye™ (See Figure 1) discrete wire socket cable assembly is available in a double row design with up to 40 total contacts on 0,8 mm pitch. The 32 AWG Teflon® cable is for use in high temperature and other harsh environments. Rugged latching is standard on the assembly with a choice of single or double ended assemblies. Components also are available (ISDE/CC396 Series) along with a hand tool or mini applicator for customer assembly production. The mating board level terminal connector (TEM Series) features a 6 mm stack height with standard latching and surface mount tails for board level stability. New 1 mm Pitch Discrete Wire System The new 1 mm pitch S1SS / T1M Series discrete wire cable and connector system features a crimp style dual leaf contact system for reliable wire-to-board connection (See Figure 2). An optional rugged retention latch system provides higher withdrawal forces for harsh environments. Figure 2. The new 1 mm pitch discrete wire system’s crimp style dual leaf contact system offers reliable wire-to- board connection. The pin and socket system is available in a single row design with up to 20 total pins. A choice of 28 or 30 AWG cable, double or single ended, is available with a 7,62 cm assembled length minimum. The surface mount connector is available in spacesaving right angle or vertical configurations. Figure 1. Samtec’s new Tiger Eye™ discrete wire assembly is available with up to 40 contacts on 0,8 mm pitch. 8 Electronic Engineering Times Europe November 2014 www.electronics-eetimes.com
