Card Edge Connectors Ride PCI Express

The company's family of press-fit, vertical card-edge connectors extend the use of a high-speed, serial PCI Express architecture to thicker system boards found in server applications. The connectors are tailored for use on 2.36-mm to 4.19-mm thick boards and are available with industry-standard x4 and x8 links typically found in servers and in a 280-position size for use with riser cards that provide support for PCI Express, PCI, or PCI-X add-in cards. Press-fit connectors are also available in standard x1 or x16 link widths. Each serial PCI Express lane consists of differential transmit and receive signal pairs that support 2.5-Gb/s data rates in each direction. Additionally, all connectors in the family support PCI Express signal and power requirements including the auxiliary signals at the interface between the system board and add-in card. Prices range from $0.01 to $0.02 per contact for 2,000-piece orders. For further information and availability, call FCI USA INC., Etters, PA. (800) 237-2374.
