Harwin extends Archer range with 0.5mm mezzanine connector

Harwin has extended its Archer range with a new 0.5mm pitch mezzanine connector meeting increased demand for even smaller and lighter solutions.

Specifically designed for applications with limited available space, the Archer .5 board, stack, or PCB connector is intended for use with compact control and monitoring equipment, embedded computing, sensor modules, camera/Lidar units, and IoT connected devices.

These 0.5mm pitch connectors meet all technical specification requirements expected by electrical designers of modern industrial equipment. Materials are compliant with RoHS and REACH SVHC and are also Halogen free.

Pin count options of 30, 40, 80, and 100 and despite a tiny pitch their contacts still have a current-carrying capacity of 0.5A each. The operating temperature range is between -55°C to 85°C, and they feature a board-to-board stack height of 8mm.

Polarisation features ensure the correct orientation and alignment to prevent mis-mating; shrouding protects contacts from accidental damage.

These connectors are supplied in tape and reel packaging and do not require a separate pick and place cap, making automated assembly easy.
