Edge Rate® Connector Strips

Rugged Edge Rate® contact systems optimized for signal integrity performance.


FAMILY OVERVIEW

Samtec’s Edge Rate® contact system is designed for high speed, high cycle applications. The surface of the Edge Rate® contact is milled creating a smooth mating surface area instead of a stamped contact that mates on a cut edge. This smooth mating surface reduces the wear tracks on the contact increasing the durability and cycle life of the contact system. It also lowers insertion and withdrawal forces allowing the connectors to be zippered when unmating.

FEATURES

  • Edge Rate® contacts optimized for signal integrity performance
  • Robust when "zippered" during unmating
  • 0.80 mm or 0.50 mm pitch systems
  • Stack heights from 7 mm to 16 mm
  • 0.50 mm pitch system for up to 40% PCB space savings
