Supplier part number: 9159-061
Name:Open Ended Card Edge
Description:AVX was challenged with increasing the pin count density as well as minimizing the size of the existing coplanar BTB card edge connector for linear strip lighting. The current product is a 2.0mm with single contacts that straddle the PCB to make electrical connection on both the top and bottom side of the board. By simply changing the contacts to a double sided configuration (separate contacts for both the top and bottom of the PCB), AVX was able to double the pin count in the same 2.0mm pitch with minimal to no impact on the electrical performance of the connector. Reducing the size of the connector required a complete new design as the target was a 4p connector with a total length of 4.0mm. To achieve this, AVX removed the end walls and then added a center support/keying rib to pre-align the PCB during mating. This rib the then holds the PCB in the proper functional location. - The new family of connectors is available with contact sizes of 4, 6, 8 and 10 positions, doubling the current products range. The current rating will be 3A for the 4p and 6p, and then drop to 2.5A for the 8p and 10p connector. The connector supports the standard 1.6mm PCB thickness. - This new connector provides the highest density to reliably connect two in-line PCB’s together in the most cost effective assembled solution. More importantly, the increased pin count allows for more flexibility in mixing and matching power and signal lines.
