Samtec latest 12-mm connector sets are compliant with the revised ANSI/VITA 42.0-2016 XMC Standard. VITA 42 XMC defines an open standard for supporting high-speed, switched interconnect protocols on an existing, widely deployed form factor. This revision further defined the concept for the preferred Standard connectors in XMC applications including:
- Solder ball attachment replaced Paste-On-Pad (POP) for improved solder joints
- Low Insertion Force (LIF) sockets to ease mating and un-mating
- Tin-lead alloy available as a solder option
- Revised ASP catalog numbers
- 12-mm stack height
Based on these guidelines, Samtec’s 12-mm stack height options expand the existing family of ANSI/VITA 42 XMC Standard connectors. For more information, visit Samtec’s XMC page and/or email [email protected].
