Molex Incorporated has launched two new versions of SlimStack™ Fine-Pitch SMT Board-to-Board Connectors. The SlimStack™ Hybrid Power SMT Board-to-Board Connector and the SlimStack Armor™ SMT Board-to-Board Connector combine extra power lines into a signal connector.
Designed for smartphones, portable audio players, and mobile medical devices, the Molex SlimStack connector portfolio offers manufacturers a wide selection of low profile, narrow width interface options in various heights and circuit sizes for space savings and design flexibility.
Molex SlimStack Hybrid Power SMT Board-to-Board Connectors primarily support power functionality in battery and other mobile device power applications. Featuring a 0.40mm pitch and ultra-low profile 0.75mm mated height, the hybrid connectors enable high-current carrying capability, with a dual-contact structure for excellent power and signal reliability. The SlimStack hybrid connector delivers 6.0A power, 0.3A signal.
Featuring a 0.35mm pitch and 0.60mm mated height, Molex SlimStack Armor SMT Board-to-Board Connectors primarily support signal functionality in mobile devices and other tight-packaging applications. When additional power is needed for value-added features, such as fast battery charging or LED flash functions, the metal housing covers on SlimStack Armor connectors can serve as power nails to deliver up to 3.0A of extra power. All Molex SlimStack connectors provide secure terminal retention. Constructed of high strength copper alloy, dual contacts on the signal and power terminals reduce the risk of power or signal disruption due to shock or vibration or drops.
