The Colibri® 0.5 mm-pitch SMT connectors from ept have guaranteed reliable data transfer rates between printed circuit boards (PCB) for high-speed applications for years. Pin counts of 40, 80, 120, and 160 will be available for applications of up to 16 Gbps as of the 2020 embedded world.
Readers of the DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK magazine were impressed by the new ScaleX technology
Together with Phoenix Contact, ept was chosen as ‘Innovator of the Year’ in the electromechanics category for its ScaleX technology used in the new Zero8 connectors. The DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK glass trophy was handed over by the magazine’s editor, Ralf Higgelke, to Claus Guglhör from ept, who was beaming with joy, and Markus Sonderer from Phoenix Contact during the awards ceremony that took place at the Seehaus restaurant in the English Garden in Munich, Germany.
The Zero8 board-to-board connector series is now available in the mid-profile and low-profile versions. The device design allows users to flexibly choose between different pin counts, types, and stack heights. Different heights allow board-to-board distances between 6.00 and 20.00 millimeters to be implemented.
