What data transfer rates are the Colibri SMT connectors suitable for?
Simulations with the Colibri® COM Express® connector system at 10 or 16 Gbps demonstrate first-rate signal integrity, making the COM Express connector system the top choice for your applications with high data transfer rates of up to 16 Gbps and higher.
What highspeed applications are Colibri connectors used for?
Colibri highspeed connectors are ideally suited for high data transfer rates – that is, for all types of highspeed applications. These include COM Express and Mezzanine board-to-board systems with data transfer rates for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express Gen3, for example.
Where are PICMG-compliant Colibri connectors already being successfully used?
Colibri COM Express connectors are already in use in the fields of industrial automation, kiosk and POS systems, medical technology, metrology, consumer electronics and gaming, the transportation industry, as well as facilities engineering.
How can Colibri SMT circuit board connectors be processed?
The Colibri connector system is processed using surface-mount technology (SMT) – in other words, it is soldered directly onto the circuit boards. The connectors are delivered in tape-and-reel packaging, allowing for fully automatic pick-and-place processing.
Is a placement aid necessary for processing Colibri highspeed connectors?
The Colibri receptacle is designed to have a big enough pick-and-place area for vacuum pipettes and therefore needs no additional placement aid.
The Colibri plug, too, can be assembled reliably without extra placement aids using a narrow vacuum pipette.
Are the PICMG Colibri connectors also delivered in tape-and-reel packaging?
Yes, Colibri SMT connectors are delivered in tape-and-reel packaging, allowing for fully automatic pick-and-place processing. Delivery in tray packaging is also possible on request.
Are Colibri COM Express connectors UL-recognized components?
Yes, Colibri connectors from ept are UL-recognized components in the U.S. and in Canada.
Are the ept circuit board connectors RoHS compliant?
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is a directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
We confirm that Colibri connectors from ept are RoHS certified and compliant with the RoHS directive (2011/65/EU). You can find more detailed information at RoHS & REACH.
