Card Edge Power Connector Ups The Density Ante

Boasting high current density and low contact resistance, TE's HD card edge connector delivers higher current than previous power card edge connectors at 25A/contact and supports 1.5 kW to 2 kW power supplies. With a maximum operating temperature of +130°C, the connector provides reliable performance in harsh environments. In addition, the signal pitch is 1.27 mm (compatible with common industry PCB footprint designs), and the elasticity of the power/signal pins provides low mating force.

 

"Current density and power requirements in servers, switches and storage devices are increasing, and the industry demands solutions that can meet those needs in demanding environments," said Bandy Yuan, product manager at TE Connectivity. "TE's HD card edge connector is a solution that addresses the requirements of networking device manufacturers for next generation equipment."
