As one of the great superheroes learned – “with great power comes great responsibility.” Even without “spidey-sense” and the ability to scale tall buildings with webbing, there is still power to be wielded with Samtec’s new mPOWER™ connectors…with incredible power comes incredible space savings and design flexibility.
Incredible Power & Space Savings
This micro 2.00 mm pitch system (UMPT/UMPS) not only saves board
mPOWER™ can be used as a standalone high-power solution, or alongside one of Samtec’s high-speed connector systems for a unique two-piece power and signal/ground solution. Compatible Samtec high-speed systems include: AcceleRate® HD, Edge Rate®, SEARAY™, SEARAY™ 0.80 mm, LP Array™, Q Strip®, Q2™, Tiger Eye™ and more.
With stack heights from 5 mm to 12 mm (up to 20 mm in development), mPOWER™ can be easily added to new or existing architectures.
Further design flexibility is available with a choice of 2, 3, 4 and 5 power blades (up to 10 blades in development). Matte Tin or 10 µ” Gold plating are standard with optional 30 µ” Gold plating to meet specific regulations.
Additionally, the power blades have 2 stage mating and can be selectively loaded to achieve any specific creepage and clearance requirements. Optional weld tabs provide increased stability on the board.
A variety of other options are in development for mPOWER™ connectors including a right-angle version with 2 to 10 position counts, and a socket cable assembly to mate with both the vertical and right-angle terminal. The cable assembly will include latching for more rugged applications.
Also in development is a 30 A system for even greater power in a small footprint.
