The Q2 second-generation high-speed connector system (QMSS/QFSS) series now has options like power pins, positive alignment features, edge-mount designs, and single-ended and differential-pair signal routing. Electromagnetic-interference shielding is optional for applications that require increased insertion depth. The series features signal pins on a 0.025-in. (0.635-mm) pitch and a 0.433-in. (11-mm) mated height. Connectors come with up to 160 I/Os per connector set in a single-ended configuration and up to 64 pairs in a differential-pair configuration. Plus, they're hot-pluggable. Pricing begins at $0.09 to $0.10 per mated line.
