Samtec Inc. has expanded its high-density product portfolio with the introduction of its SEARAY (SEAM/SEAF series) interconnects that support up to 500 I/Os.

The SEAM and SEAF interconnects provide a solid grid of contacts on 1.27mm pitch and up to 500 I/Os. These connectors match the footprint of Samtec's SamArray connector, but with added features and stack heights.

These SEARAY interconnects feature lower insertion/extraction forces, which make the connectors more user-friendly. The series also provides users with a choice of solder-crimps on the tails with traditional tin-lead alloy or RoHS compliant tin-only for Pb-free processing.

Stack heights of 7-, 8.5-, and 10mm are available along with array sizes of 8 or 10 rows x 20, 30, 40 or 50 pins per row. Pins may be routed single-ended or differentially. Insertion loss performance is -3dB at 4GHz for single-ended applications and 9GHz for differential pair applications.

Pricing for the SEAF/SEAM series is 9 cents per mated line.
