451 series data sheet - .PDF file.

TTI is offering the 451 series of interconnects from 3M: minature but rugged, the pitch ribbon cable-to-PCB interconnects measure only 0.050in, thus saving space on the PCB and allowing for high connection density. The devices are also said to deliver on performance, reliability and cost savings.

The 451 series incorporates 3M’s insulation displacement contact (IDC) technology in the connector, helping maintain secure connections and high signal integrity. The IDC connector’s mass termination capability allows the termination of 30 lines in a single cycle, reducing the need for expensive automated termination equipment and allowing manual cable assembly operations.

Available friction-latch configurations and an optional strain-relief accessory can further increase connection reliability, while an optional header ejector latch mechanism provides positive latch and ejection capability with minimal size addition.

The shrouded boardmount header (0.050 x 0.050in), 452 series is available in a variety of configurations in order to maximise design flexibility while minimising PCB footprint. Tape-and-reel packaging for the SMT version of the header is available for automated placement applications, and PCB standoffs help enable pin-in-paste processing capability.

Both series can help design engineers of high-performance electronic systems meet the demand for high-density equipment in applications such as communications, military/aerospace, industrial production, data centre and high-performance computing.
