The 27th edition of the ept connectors catalog just arrived hot off the press – and you can get your very own copy!
Short Delivery Times: SMT PCB Connections with a Pitch of 1.27 mm
All of the unit height and pin count combinations of the straight One27 connectors can be delivered to your doorstep within two weeks!
Do you need reliable SMT PCB connections with a pitch of 1.27 mm, and do you need them fast? The straight One27® SMT PCB connectors from ept are now available with a shipping time of just two to four weeks. With a pitch of only 1.27 mm, they can be used to connect mezzanine PCBs. Are you already purchasing your 1.27 mm-pitch SMT connectors from another manufacturer, but are you needing to complement them with straight male or female connectors? The One27® connectors are proven to be compatible with all currently available SMT connectors with a pitch of 1.27 mm from other manufacturers.
Tried-and-tested SMT connectors soon available for 16+ Gbps applications
Colibri high-speed connectors will soon offer even more
Ept’s Colibri PCB connectors, which have a pitch of 0.5 mm, are already a reliable choice in COM express and high-speed applications up to 10 Gbps. Now, ept is looking to add a new, high-speed variant to the connector series. The new connector will be suitable for data transfer rates of up to 16 Gbps and beyond.
High-Speed PCB Connectors for Extended Environmental Requirements
ept Colibri SMT connectors are now optionally available with a thicker gold coating
ept’s Colibri PCB connectors, which have a pitch of 0.5 mm, are a reliable choice in COM express and high-speed applications up to 10 Gbps. In response to customer demand, these high-speed connectors are now also available as a Heavy Au version for deployment in challenging environments.
Stacking of PCBs with Differing Distances
Electronic developers are frequently tasked with adapting parallel PCB connections to a wide range of spatial requirements. With ept’s One27® SMT PCB connector, which has a pitch of 1.27 mm, the distance between any two stacked PCBs is variable by up to 5.8 mm.
The 3.0 release of the successful COM Express computer-on-module standard includes a new pinout type. This enables a faster data transfer rate of up to 10 Gbps, thereby expanding the applicability of COM Express in terms of server applications. Of course, the PCB connectors required to connect the baseboard and the COM module need to meet these increased requirements.
The connector specialist ept guarantees to its customers the long-term availability of VarPol pin headers and female sockets with a pitch of 2.54 mm. For years, hardware developers have sworn by the product, which allows you to reliably and flexibly connect circuit boards together or connect a cable to a circuit board.
Are you looking to speed up your COM Express application? Colibri® connectors from ept deliver first-rate signal integrity even at 10 Gbps, making the COM Express connector system the top choice for your applications at these speeds and higher. They are ideal for PCI Express Gen3 applications with 8 Gbps or 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GBase-KR). S-parameters are available on request from ept for use in simulating your proprietary designs.
ept is introducing a new board-to-board connector range based on the press-fit system: flexilinkb-t-b connectors provide high-quality, non-pluggable connections between PCBs at a pitch of 2.54 mm, making use of the successful 'Tcom press' press-fit system.
