Custom Connector Designs Possible With Open-Pin-Field Device

Utilizing the same organizing stiffener as the VHDM product family, the VHDM L-Series connector is configured as an open-pin-field version. It lets designers create custom connector configurations. Designers can co-locate any combination of VHDM, VHDM-HSD, and VHDM L-Series parts on the same connector to accommodate a mix of high- and low-speed connections. The L-Series is fully compatible with all VHDM components, such as power and guidance modules. The L-Series eight-row connector offers 101 signals per linear inch, while the six-row version provides 76 signals per linear inch. Daughtercard wafers are available in five-column modules designed to mate with backplane modules in 10- and 25-column configurations. Backplane modules are available in open configurations or with optional polarizing and guidance. The VHDM L-Series platform connector, available in June, costs approximately $0.06 to $0.08 per mated signal line.
