New Albany, Ind. Samtec Inc. offers a variety of one-piece interfaces for high shock/vibration applications. The one-piece designs provide low-cost board stacking by reducing the number of components required to be purchased and processed. They can also improve quality over elastomeric systems and pin-and-socket systems due to more reliable connections and elimination of bent pins, Samtec said.
Dual-row interfaces on 1-mm (.0394-inch) pitch (FSI series) provide a range of board spacings from 3 mm (.118 inch) to 10 mm (.394 inch) between boards. For ultra-low-profile applications on 1-mm (.0394 inch) pitch, the SEL series provides .025-inch (0.64 mm) and .050-inch (1.27 mm) board spacing while the SEI series provides .065-inch (1.65 mm) board spacing.
The GFZ series of high-density array interconnects offers up to 1200 I/Os and a 3-mm (.118-inch) board spacing profile. Specialty applications on .100-inch (2.54-mm) pitch include the SIB series of one-piece power interfaces, and the PGP series of single- and double-row one-piece pogo style interface strips.
