Automotive quality product offers a reliable, repeatable and versatile solution that can be scaled according to specific customer needs
SINGAPORE, November 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — interplex, a world leader in the design and manufacture of interconnect and mechanical products, successfully meets the growing market demand for high-density interconnects in challenging application scenarios. The company has just released its Multi-row table-to-Board (BTB) connector product.
Thanks to the patented snap-on biscuit design, this ingenious interconnect concept will disrupt the industry – allowing multiple connector units to be stacked together. This means that interconnects can be sized appropriately while preventing them from being custom built. The unique, cost-effective approach taken by Interplex will allow different pin count requirements to be met through the same basic interconnect platform, without any additional expense or engineering effort.
The new Multi-Row BTB connectors feature 0.4 mm miniPLX™ snug fit pins, so the need for soldering is eliminated. These pins are made from a copper alloy and feature very low levels of contact resistance (
Interplex Multi-Row BTB connectors are available in board stack heights from 7mm to 30mm. They can have between 1 and 6 rows, with up to 30 contact terminals incorporated in each row. Compliant with automotive performance requirements, these rugged products can withstand high levels of humidity (8 hour cycle down to 10% RH), shock (35g for 5-10ms on 10 axes) and vibration (8 hours per axis). An operating temperature range of -40°C to +150°C is supported.
“Being able to fit enough interconnect terminal pins in a small space, while not having any excess, is a priority for all of our customers. At the same time, it’s also vital to reduce their total cost of ownership,” says Ralph Semmeling, Product Portfolio Manager for Custom Connectors at Interplex. “This means that the companies we deal with want access to off-the-shelf products at attractive prices, but with the inherent flexibility that a custom strategy provides. Our new stackable interconnect platform gives them the best of both worlds.. Allowing them to design at cost.
There are a wide variety of applications for which rugged, high density and scalable multi-row BTB connectors will be targeted. Among the most important of these will be electric vehicles (EVs), particularly for the functions of electric power steering and electronic control units. There are also opportunities for these connectors to be used in industrial automation systems (like robots), transportation equipment (trains), medical instrumentation (like imaging scanners), and more.
