UCC8

FireFly™ Positive Latching Receptacle

This FireFly™ positive latching receptacle is one part of a two-piece connector system with a tiny footprint on the board and interchageable for both copper and optical flyover cable assemblies. The receptacle is designed to secure the flyover cable assembly to the board with weld tabs that significantly increase the sheer resistance of the connector to the PCB. It not only provides rugged mechanical support but also optional power and low speed communications.

  • Low profile right-angle design
  • Standard alignment pins and through-hole tails
  • Selective gold plated contacts
  • Available in 10 positions
  • Tape and reel packaging
  • Patent pending
