Samtec Inc. has grown its Q2 second-generation Q Series high-speed connector system, the QMS and QFS series, with right-angle and edge-mount connectors for perpendicular and co-planar board mating applications.

The Q2 high-speed connectors feature contacts on .635mm pitch with increased insertion depth and integrated guide posts for rugged applications. The differential system delivers performance up to 7.5GHz, and the single-ended version operates up to 8GHz depending on stack height and configuration. An integral, surface-mount ground/power plane is rated for up to 8.9A at 80C. They are available with 52-208 pins for single-ended applications and 16-64 signal pairs for differential applications.

A variety of standard off-the-shelf high-speed data rate mating cables are also available. RF connectors, power pins, EMI shielding, and retention pins that can nearly double unmating forces can be added as standard options on these connectors. For parallel board mating applications in an 11mm mated stack height, Final Inch PCB layout recommendations and application notes for XAUI, PCI Express and SATA are available.

Pricing is $0.11 per mated line (including ground/power plan), in production quantities.
