SlimStack floating connectors from Molex

Molex has launched two new sizes of the SlimStack Floating Board-to-Board Connectors, 0.40mm and 1.25mm.

Designed to save space and prevent fretting corrosion and provide improved contact reliability, the easy assembly also allow for design flexibility. The B-to-B connectors are made for the automotive, industrial, and consumer applications markets which require a large floating range and high-speed transmission.

The SlimStack 0.40mm Floating Board-to-Board Connectors feature a low halogen housing material, a ±0.50mm floating range that eases misalignment worries by facilitating automatic assembly, a soft floating force, temperature support up to 1250C, and a high-speed transmission rate of 6 Gbps.

The 1.25mm pitch SlimStack Floating Board-to-Board Connectors features a spring design that stops fretting corrosion, increases contact reliability, and is vibration resistant. The wide floating range, in three different directions, reduces the PWB gap and facilitates assembly, even in misalignment and blind joining situations. There’s also an improved contact design and a soft floating force.
