FCI disclosed that it has developed the first 78-way right-angled D-subminiature connector with press-fit terminations.

According to the company, the new connector enables designers to create higher density product designs without having to move to an alternative and less robust connector technology. The maximum pin count of this type of connector was previously 50.

The 78-way female connector occupies the same board space as 50-way versions and is suitable for telecom and industrial applications. FCI also said that the product "helps avoid the cost and time of an additional wave solder process."

Arranged in four rows, the connector's gold plated phosphor bronze contacts support a maximum current handling of 3A. The new device is rated for up to 500 mating/unmating cycles. Further information can be found online.
