Mouser stocks Molex high-speed mezzanine connector system
Distributor Mouser has announced it is stocking the NeoPress, high-speed mezzanine system, for space-constrained applications from Molex. The modular press-fit system includes tunable differential pairs, low stack heights, and compliant-pin terminations with a staggered interface configuration. It offers data rates up to 28Gbit/s.
It is claimed to minimise near-end and far-end crosstalk, matching the signal integrity of NeoScale SMT connectors. The compliant pin enables solderless termination, allowing designers to rework the board and maximise system use without sacrificing signal integrity, claims the company.
The modular triad wafer design includes high-speed differential pairs that can be tuned to 85 to 100Ohm impedances. The mirror-image triad layout simplifies PCB routing, lowering system costs by decreasing the number of PCB layers required for signal routing.
System options include high-speed single-ended traces and low-speed single-ended lines and power contacts, allowing designers to conserve PCB real estate by supporting low- and high-speed signals and power requirements with one compact connector.
The system is available in mated 84-triad plug and receptacle with a stack height of 13.50mm. It can be used in space-sensitive applications, in high-density telecommunications and networking devices, such as hubs, servers, NAS towers and rack-mount servers, and can also be used in industrial automation and medical applications.
