Santa Ana, Calif. The ITT Cannon DLP series of Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) connectors are said to provide greater contact reliability and reduced signal crosstalk.
With a minimum rated life of 10,000 mate/unmate cycles and no loss in performance, DLP series connectors can be mated/unmated in less than two seconds. Because the contact in the receptacle (female) connector mates directly to the printed-circuit-board (PCB) on the plug half, signal paths and crosstalk are minimized, said the company.
The DLP series connectors are available in 136, 204, 272, and 408 configurations. Rated current is 0.5 A and contact resistance is 30 mΩ maximum. Metal shells and grounding springs provide EMI/RFI protection. These ZIF connectors may be used in a variety of applications including ultrasound diagnostic instruments and semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
The ZIF connectors use 34-way high-density contact modules for flexibility in various applications in medical and industrial equipment. A quarter turn of the knob shaft mates all the contacts at once using a cam and bearing mechanism. Shock and vibration performance is rated to MIL-STD-202F.
Prices range from approximately $0.30/IO depending on configuration and volume. Delivery depends on the design and configuration.
