AVX'S NEW BOARD-TO-BOARD COMPRESSION CONNECTORS PROVIDE 5,000-CYCLE DURABILITY & THE LOWEST COMPRESSED HEIGHT AVAILABLE

GREENVILLE, S.C., May 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has extended its line of high-reliability board-to-board compression connectors for commercial, medical, and harsh industrial applications with the addition of an ultra-low-profile power connector. Featuring gold-plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts that are insert-molded within the insulator for location and mechanical stability, the new 9155-100 Series connectors are capable of supporting the lowest compressed height (1.3mm) of any comparable connector currently on the market.  The series also provides the most reliable and resilient performance available in a similarly miniature package, which is evidenced by their incredible mechanical endurance rating of 5,000 mating cycles.   "AVX obtained the very first contact patent in the early 1990s and has been the leading manufacturer of highly reliable board-to-board compression connectors ever since, thanks to our relentless innovation and design cycle and the novel new products that continually result from it," said Tom Anderson, product manager at AVX.   AVX's new 9155-100 Series board-to-board compression connectors feature a 1.3mm minimum operating height and a sweeping contact design that provides a 0.7mm Z-axis deflection range, a long contact wipe, and greater than 40 grams of contact force at minimum operating deflection.  Rated for 3A per contact, 125VAC, and a -40°C to +105°C operating temperature range, the series supports a broad spectrum of applications, including repeatable/pluggable modules and battery packs, low-profile flex circuit to PCB applications, and nearly any application that requires low profile power, signal, or ground shielding.   The 9155-100 Series compression connectors also feature 0.4μm selective gold in the mating area for high reliability and are currently available in two and three position configurations; however, a single contact version designed for increased design flexibility and cost effectiveness is expected to go into production in June.
