|SEARAY™ High Density System - SEARAY™ is a .050 high density, high speed board-to-board interconnect system. The SEAM/SEAF Series open pin field array configuration allows maximum routing and design flexibility. SEARAY™ can be mapped as a single-ended application, differential pair application, or a combination of both. When routed as a single-ended system, SEARAY™ is rated at 5 GHz per pin (at -3dB insertion loss).
The contacts in the SEARAY™ system are robust and allow for zippering when mating and unmating the connectors. The Edge Rate™ contact lowers insertion and extraction forces, an important consideration given SEARAY™ is available with up to 500 I/Os.
|Q Strip® High Speed Mezzanine Samtec Q Strip® mezzanine connectors are designed for high speed board-to-board applications where signal integrity is essential. These interconnects are available on three different pin pitches (.5mm, .635mm, .8mm).
Q Strip® connectors have surface mount signal contacts as well as an integral surface mount ground/power plane between the two rows of signals for improved electrical performance. This ground/power plane is rated at 8.9A at 80°C. Mated sets of the Q Strip® connectors are available in eight stack heights from 5mm (.197”) to 30mm (1.180”).
