Simi Valley, Calif. — Hirose has introduced a customizable series of board-to-board power connectors that feature a 3-piece structure consisting of the mating receptacle, the interposer, and the mounting receptacle. The IT-P Series provides a wide range of variable height interposers to achieve board-to-board stack heights ranging from 13.5 mm to 44 mm.
Designed for assembly with the stackable IT3 and IT5 Series high-speed mezzanine connectors, the IT-P Series offers a current rating of 60A. The connectors offers multiple contact points between the receptacle crown contacts and interposer pins. The receptacles are equipped with a latching mechanism to hold the interposers securely in place, and are keyed to prevent incorrect assembly.
The IT-P Series power connectors are RoHS compliant. With an operating temperature range of -55°C to +85°C, the IT-P Series provides a contact resistance of 2 mΩ maximum, and an insulation resistance of 1000 MΩ minimum at 500 VDC. The low-profile receptacles are designed to ensure an easy reflow assembly process to the PCB, said Hirose.
