I recently purchased my first home. Never having a yard before, I’ve spent the last few months purchasing all the tools and gadgets needed to keep it well maintained. After all those trips to the hardware store, I’ve learned that purchasing durability and reliability is an investment for future seasons of cutting, trimming, and watering.
We’ve recently released an updated Micro Rugged Design Guide introducing new Ultra Rugged products and Ultra Rugged testing that provide durability and reliability in rugged applications, minus those annoying weeds. The Guide also dives into our rugged contact systems, Tiger Eye™ and Edge Rate®, as well as flexible power solutions up to 60 Amps.
ULTRA RUGGED SOLUTIONS
URSA™ I/O systems feature a hyperboloid-type contact with four points of contact for an extremely reliable connection and extremely high mating cycles. Available as cable-to-cable and cable-to-board with up to 40 positions per row on a micro 1.00 mm pitch, this rugged power I/O system also features EMI shielding to limit signal degradation and ultimately optimize performance. URSA™ I/O is currently in development; please contact MicroRuggedGroup@samtec.com.
Ultra Rugged Hardware rounds out the new product offerings with SureWare™ guide post standoffs (GPSO). They allow for 0.035” of misalignment and assist with “blind mate” for ultra micro fine pitch mezzanine connectors such as NovaRay®, AcceleRate® HP, AcceleRate® HD and mPOWER®. Additionally, these standoffs are constructed of 303 stainless steel with an MIL-C-13924 black oxide finish for corrosion protection.
Severe Environment Testing (SET) supports Ultra Rugged Solutions with additional testing beyond typical industry standards for performance confidence in rugged and harsh environments. Several Samtec products are SET qualified with many more currently being tested.
