Samtec has introduced its new Twisted Pair IDC cable assemblies which provide up to 2.5x the performance of traditional IDC flat cable, but at a lower cost than mid-data rate flex and high data rate coax cables.

The differentially touted assemblies employ 32 AWG 7/40 tinned, twisted pair cable with PVC insulation and Samtec's high-quality, multi-finger 0.05-inch (1.27mm) pitch Tiger IDC contact system. This is suitable for high reliability and high mating cycle applications.

The female assembly (FFTP Series) is double-ended with standard notch polarization and mates with Samtec's standard 0.05-inch (1.27mm) micro, shrouded and ejector headers. The male assembly (FMTP Series) is available in double-ended or with a transfer end (socket has notch polarization) and mates with Samtec's standard 0.05-inch (1.27mm) low profile and micro socket pins.

Both assemblies are available in a choice of cable lengths with an optional reverse connector on the second end and are RoHS compliant.
