Interconnections & Packaging: Low-Profile VRM Connector Suits 1U Server Applications

The iCool low-profile VRM connector enables the use of vertical voltage-regulator modules (VRMs) in 1U servers, both VRM 10.0 and 10.2 types. It also fits small-form-factor PCs and workstations. The connector handles up to 130 A in 4.0-in. connectors and comes with a through-hole or surface-mount solder attachment. Integral latches with a reverse angle-latch lock ensure that the VRM is secure during shock testing. Features include 20 signal contacts for VR control, four fork locks, and selectively gold-plated contacts. Optional 2U server versions for up to 60°C ambients are also available. Lead times are six to eight weeks.
