Harting has launched a new version of its AdvancedMC plug connector with enhanced contact reliability and reduced manufacturing costs for AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA applications.

The card edge has been replaced by gold pads for AdvancedMC and MCH modules.

Designed to provide a two-piece plug-in connection for AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA applications, the Harting AdvancedMC plug connector is mounted onto the basic side of the AdvancedMC module.

Mounting is compatible with the use of automatic pick-and-place machines, and soldering can be carried out using the pin-in-hole-reflow process or by wave soldering.

An alternative version is available for assembly on the bottom (extended) component side.

The improved Harting AdvancedMC plug supports data transmission rates up to 12.5Gbit/s.

Because the connector, rather than the card edge, now defines the interface, it is now possible to use PCBs with a thickness beyond the previously specified range.

The design of the insertion tongue reduces the insertion force.

The Harting AdvancedMC plug connector helps to reduce the manufacturing costs of AdvancedMC modules since, because the PCB does not have to be equipped with gold pads, users can save on quality control costs and only require a simple hole array.

The company is offering a plug-in connector for MCH modules to MTCA.0 that can be used to transmit signals from one PCB via two vertically stacked insertion tongues.
