Suyin – Highly-versatile SATA / Mini-SATA receptacle connector range with height options (ATA)Mar 26 2012 - Connectors, Switches & EMECH [More Connectors, Switches & EMECH Articles]
Latest from Suyin, is an extensive range of 22-position (15 data pins and 7 power pins) Serial-ATA (SATA) connectors for surface (SMT) and through-hole (THT) mounting, as well as a SMT Mini-SATA receptacle connector with 16 contact terminations.
A wide selection of different overall heights is available. The spectrum ranges from -1mm for countersunk mounting on the printed circuit board (PCB), to 11.5mm (height above the board surface) in one-millimeter increments and in many intermediate sizes. More than 300 variants are available.
Examples include the 127043HR022XX2QZX model with a height range from -1mm (from the PCB surface to the centre of the receptacle, see image) and the 127043FB022XX15XX, with an overall height of 11.5mm. All receptacles are equipped for blind-mate / hot-plugging handling with two side-mounted positioning posts that prevent incorrect mounting and are able to handle greater misalignment tolerances during mating.
Two retention clips, which are also located on the connector’s sides and have M2 threading, enable sturdy screw mounting on the PCB. The copper-alloy receptacle contacts with gold-over-nickel plating are configured for a max. load of 150VDC /1.5ADC per pin and are specified for 300 mating cycles. The contact resistance is 30mohm (initial); the insulation resistance is 1000Mohm (initial), and the maximum insertion force is 35N.
Many of the current SATA receptacles were originally developed for custom projects. Depending on the order volume and the required delivery period, Suyin is able to meet customer-specific requirements with regard to the type of packaging, adaptation of the connector housing, or the use of alternative contact plating, says the company.More news from Suyin
