ERNI Electronics Expands MicroStac Family to Include Single and Two-Row Versions

20 FEBRUARY 2009

ERNI Electronics has expanded its 0.8mm MicroStac® SMT connector series to include a 10- (single row) and 54-pin (dual row) version. The MicroStac advantage is based on a patented hermaphroditic design, a special design requiring only one part number which enables reduced logistic and inventory costs for board-to-board applications. The powerful combination of the MicroStac’s miniature construction and its innovative design makes it ideal for extremely compact and demanding applications. Furthermore, the scope of applications is very broad, ranging from sensor technology, medical instruments and mobile communication to automotive electronics, automation engineering, measurement technology, test equipment and building automation. For medical applications, new antistatic versions are now available upon request. The SMT construction and unique design of the MicroStac allow for economical and automatic assembly. The stability of the miniature connector is facilitated through a tilt-proof contact principle with dual side positioning of the contact on the PCB. In addition, with its corresponding features of minimal weight (just 0.18g for the 6-pin design), 100% SMT co-planarity of < 0.1mm and suction areas integrated in the insulating body for pick-and-place assembly, the MicroStac is perfectly suited for high-speed manufacturing requirements.
