Samtec’s Edge Rate™ contact system is optimized for signal integrity performance in high speed and multi-cycle applications. This system offers many advantages over stamped contacts and is available in various interconnects and cable assemblies with a choice of pitch, orientation and ruggedizing options.
The smooth, broad, milled mating surface of the Edge Rate™ contacts increases wear life and minimizes the effects of broadside coupling, which decreases crosstalk for superior signal integrity performance. Increased impedance control is achieved by a straight, consistent material cross section. Robust when mating and unmating, this contact system also features a long contact wipe up to 1,5 mm which improves the mating angle tolerance. In addition, Edge Rate™ contacts are suitable for a variety of high speed protocols and standards.
The versatile contact system can be found in Samtec’s Edge Rate™, Q Rate® and SEARAY™ product families. The Edge Rate™ family includes 0,50 mm (.0197”) and 0,80 mm (.0315”) pitch connector strips, high speed edge card sockets and coax or twinax cable assemblies. Q Rate® connectors and cable assemblies feature a 0,80 mm (.0315”) pitch with ground/power plane on a slim body design for space-saving high speed applications. High density SEARAY™ open pin field arrays are available on 0,80 mm (.0315”) or 1,27 mm (.050”) pitch to maximize grounding and routing flexibility with up to 5—I/Os in stack heights from 4 mm to 40 mm.
