Molex headers save PCB space

The HS Stac headers have recently been released by Molex Inc. The 0.80mm pitch headers are modular, stackable and they also combine the Stac64 connector system with the USCAR-30 HSAutolink interface.

"Expanding in-vehicle functionality means increasing terminal requirements for devices and modules," says Laurent Stickeir, global product manager, Molex. "Customers wanting to use or already using the Stac64 system for I/O connections can now use HS Stac headers to create custom, ganged multi-bay headers, combining I/O with high-speed signal without expensive tooling investment. In addition to cost savings and simplified assembly, this allows customers greater design flexibility and saves application space."

The automotive industry-standard interface, known as USCAR-30, supports USB 2.0 requirements and other high-speed technologies, including low voltage differential signalling (LVDS) and Ethernet for infotainment, telematic devices, car stereo and navigation systems, and driver-assist electronic modules. HS Stac right-angle headers package the USCAR-30 interface found in the Molex HSAutoLink family in a rugged, shroud-stackable formation compatible with the widely deployed Molex Stac64 header family. This design creates a unique multi-bay, high-speed connection system to meet growing in-vehicle terminal requirements for devices and modules in automotive and commercial transportation applications.

HS Stac headers mate with a range of existing HSAutoLink cable assemblies for a complete connection solution. For additional information visit:
