DF50 1mm pitch, board-to-wire connector reportedly reduces required printed circuit board mounting area. Features a locking mechanism designed to prevent uneven locking. Locking function and contact mating occur simultaneously. Has a lance structure with a cable pull force of 10N min. Is designed with blade type contacts attached to a thick housing wall said to be resistant to cracking or deformation. Nickel barrier plating prevents solder wicking. Comes in straight and right angle versions; available in a single-row with 2 to 16 positions or as a double-row with 30 positions. Has a current rating of 1A per pin, a voltage rating of 100 VAC / DC, contact resistance of 50 mO max. at 20mV (1mA) and an operating temperature range of -35° to 85°C. For LCD, LCD TVs, PDP, wireless LANs, office equipment, notebook PCs/laptop computers, industrial control units, automotive audio and navigation systems, medical devices, commercial gaming equipment and consumer hobby applications.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
