Samtec Inc. has introduced its Power-Edge connector (PEC) series.

Designed to bring more power to a board through an edge-card interface with three, seven or 10 contacts, the one-piece connector is rated at up to 5A. Contacts are on a 0.254mm pitch. The connector has built-in card latches that increase the force needed to remove the power board.

Optional alignment pins and locking clips are available for easier processing when attaching the connector to the board. The one-piece design reduces the cost by eliminating the need to purchase and process two components instead of just one, said the company.

Pricing starts at 10 cents and 15 cents per line. Parts will be available by month's end. Lead time will be one to three days after the parts have been released.
