Sullins’ Edgecard Portfolio Now Features Press-Fit Terminations for High-Reliability/High-Cycle Applications


Double-Row, .100″ Contact Centerline Connectors are 100% RoHS-Compliant

San Marcos, CA-June 6, 2006-
Sullins Electronics, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of board level interconnects, today announced the addition of pin compliant solderless press-fit edgecard connectors to satisfy OEMs’ and assembliers’ requirements for improved manufacturing yields and assembly efficiencies. Offering an excellent quality/cost ratio, the .100″ contact centerline connectors boast exceptionally rugged insulators together with gold-plated contacts to ensure the durability of signal integrity in high-cycle applications. Press-fit edgecards feature high-density .100″ spacing on 0.062″ daughterboards, and support 0.093″ (2.36 mm) to 0.125″ (3.18 mm) thick motherboards. These robust parts join Sullins’ 100% RoHS -complaint portfolio of edgecards, headers, CompactPCI™, and bi-level connectors, along with their lineup of parts designed specifically for high-temperature applications.

Providing among the industry’s most reliable connections, Sullins’ solderless press-fit edgecards are ideal for employment as backpanel connectors as they eliminate the challenges that often arise when thicker, multilayer PCBs with a high copper content are subjected to the high temperatures essential for conventional or wave soldering. Accordingly, the UL Recognized parts may be confidently specified for the widest range of high-reliability/high-cycle applications in which the circuit connection of a PCB to a high-density daughterboard is required. Among their uses are in such general industrial, commercial and consumer applications as security systems, and computer peripherals.

Provided standard with phosphor bronze, gold-plated (30 microinch) contacts to insure high-cycle life, edgecards are available with contacts in configurations ranging from 5/10 to 60/120. The press-fit connectors further feature black PBT insulators, and a current rating of 3 Amp per contact pair. Additional specifications include an operating temperature rage of -65 degrees C to +125 degrees C, and insertion force of 16 ounces max. per contact pair. Parts may be ordered with-or-without scoops, and with a choice of tail lengths. A broad range of mounting styles, plating and keying options, and customization is also available.
