Samtec's Pitch Micro Card interfaces

Samtec has expanded its Micro Card socket line with the introduction of surface mount 0.635mm pitch interfaces (MEC6 Series) available in both right-angle and vertical orientations. These sockets have a double row of phosphor bronze contacts to mate with standard double-sided 1.6mm thick cards.

Seven standard sizes are available with vertical orientation, and 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 I/Os per side non-polarized and with 50, 60 and 70 I/Os per side with a keying feature to assure proper card insertion. Five right-angle styles are available with 10 through 40 I/Os non-polarized and 50 I/Os per row with the keying feature.

These high density interfaces require minimal board area. For example, 80 I/Os require less than 300mm? for vertical orientation while 80 I/Os with a right-angle orientation requires 260mm? of board area.
