Description

FULLY COMPLIANT CONNECTOR FOR ADVANCED MC™ MODULES

MicroTCA (μTCA) vertical card edge connectors provide 170 contacts on a 0.75mm pitch and enable Advanced MC™ modules to be plugged directly to a backplane. MicroTCA card edge connectors' conventional press-fit or surface mount assembly processes and connector designs require no costly hardware, resulting in low total applied cost.

  • Up to 18Gb/s data rate per lane
  • Press-fit and SMT versions are available
  • Modules can be plugged directly to the backplane
