ERNI unveiled a single-row cable connector system with a 1.27mm pitch, targeted at space-saving and flexible board-to-cable connections.

The new MiniBridge connectors are designed for diverse sensor, actuator, power-supply and data applications in the fields of automotive and industrial electronics, computer technology, consumer electronics and medical-device technology.

With dimensions of 10-by-10-by-3mm (4-pin version), the new miniature connector components offer a current-carrying capacity of 4A (at 20C, depending on the cable). Using straight or angled male connectors, and female connectors where the cables are fed out at 90 or 180, this connector makes it possible to overcome practically all spatial restrictions, said ERNI. The connectors' operating temperature range is from -55C to 125C.

4-pin version
The MiniBridge connectors are being launched with a 4-pin version. Additional variants with 2-, 3-, 6- and 8 pins are planned. The male connectors have SMT termination, while the female connectors use insulation displacement connector (IDC) termination. In addition, female connectors are available with different types of locking latches for normal vibration/shock loads (black model type) as well as for applications involving heavy vibration/shock loads (red model type). With the robust version, opening the lock requires a tool.

With their heat-resistant plastic housing, the MiniBridge connectors are suited for processing with Pb-free reflow soldering. Pricing is about $1 in volume per mated pair for the 4-pin version.
