Harwin, a company dedicated to solving connection challenges, has extended its connector line up again with a new 0.5mm-pitch range.
Following the recent introduction of the Archer .8 (0.8mm-pitch, board-to-board connectors), the company’s award-winning engineering design team developed this latest compact mezzanine connector in response to the increasing market feedback for even smaller and lighter solutions.
Specifically developed for applications with limited available space, the Archer .5 is the ideal choice of board, stack, or PCB connector. Applications include compact control and monitoring equipment, embedded computing, sensor modules, camera/Lidar units, and IoT-connected devices.
Similar to the Archer .8, the 0.5mm pitch connectors meet all technical specification requirements expected by electrical designers of modern industrial equipment. Materials are compliant with RoHS and REACH SVHC and are also Halogen-free.
Designed without compromise, pin count options of 30, 40, 80, and 100, and with a tiny pitch, but their contacts still have a current-carrying capacity of 0.5A each. The operating temperature range is between -55° to 85° C, and they feature a board-to-board stack height of 8mm.
The Archer .5 includes reliability and safety by design, as with all Harwin products. Polarisation features ensure the correct orientation and alignment to prevent mismating; shrouding protects contacts from accidental damage. These connectors are supplied in tape and reel packaging and do not require a separate pick and place cap, making automated assembly easy.
