Minitek connector system from FCI

FCI said it is the first to develop a 2mm pitch modular connector system with 0.1mm coplanarity for all surface-mount parts, enabling the Minitek connector family to meet the latest process requirements.

Compared to 2.54mm pitch systems, the Minitek connectors take up 38 percent less PCB space, and when combined with the 0.1mm coplanarity, this translates into less solder paste required, which reduces total applied costs by up to 25 percent, according to FCI.

The Minitek 2mm pitch modular connector systems include PCB receptacles, slim-line and shrouded headers, crimp-to-wire housings and terminals, unshrouded headers and IDC receptacles. The connectors are available in surface-mount and through-hole terminations, double-row versions, in either straight or right-angle orientation with four to 50 positions. The maximum current rating is 2A per contact.

The Minitek line is available with standard selective plating, which meets all environmental requirements for Pb-free and RoHS-compatible components.
