15-Gb/s Stacking Connector Uses Space Efficiently

Promoting efficient use of PCB space, the STRADA Mesa mezzanine connector offers a stacking, board-to-board connection solution and delivers speeds up to 15 Gb/s. Its design provides three pin and socket signal contact arrangement options: high-speed differential, high-density single-ended, and RF/ Coaxial. Stack height options range from 8 mm to 42 mm in 1-mm increments. The component’s integrated power contacts are each capable of carrying 14A of current. The STRADA Mesa connector is available in eight pairs per column and in sizes one, two, and three, which when fully loaded with differential pairs will yield 40, 80 and 120 pairs, respectively. Additional features include optional open space for airflow and optional guide systems to accommodate blind mating. TYCO ELECTRONICS, Harrisburg, PA. (877) 623-4766.
