Enhanced Power Connector Series from Amphenol Features Low Profile, Capacity to Carry High Current

Technical Specifications
  • Can carry up to 150A at 500V DC
  • Offers wire terminations ranging from 6 AWG to 2 AWG
  • Uses proven RADSOK™ technology
Endicott, NY August 2022 – Amphenol Industrial Operations, a global leader in interconnect systems, has enhanced its Amphe-PD series with two low profile, two-way power connectors that have the capacity to carry high current. The Amphe-PD Mini 5.7mm and Gen2 5.7mm Amphe-PD can be used to transfer power from a PSU/PDU to a CPU, GPU PCB board.
The Amphe-PD Mini 5.7mm is designed to carry up to 120A at 500V DC. These connectors are available in busbar mount, right angle and vertical SMT compatible PCB mount.
The Gen2 5.7mm Amphe-PD can carry a maximum current of 150A at 500V DC. They come in black and red with a plastic housing and are available in vertical SMT compatible PCB mount.
Both connectors offer wire terminations ranging from 6 AWG to 2 AWG and can transfer power from a cable harness to PCB or other power application.
Both connectors in this enhanced power connector series feature a small footprint making them ideal for use in energy storage racks, data center equipment, servers, 5G, HPC and electrical devices where space is limited. They can accommodate reflow soldering or press fit termination onto the PCB.
These 5.7mm connectors feature RADSOK technology for higher amperage, lower t-rise, less resistance, and lower mating forces. This technology allows for more power in a smaller footprint.
The connectors also offer a mechanical latch feature that locks the connector in the mated position.
Both the Amphe-PD Mini 5.7mm and Gen2 5.7mm Amphe-PD are RoHS compliant and are available in UL-94 V0.

PCIe Gen5 x16 Running on the Achronix VectorPath Accelerator Card

Sponsored by Achronix

In this demo, Achronix engineers show the VectorPath Accelerator Card successfully linking up to a PCIe Gen5 x16 host and write data to and read data from GDDR6 memory. The VectorPath accelerator card featuring the Speedster7t FPGA is one of the first FPGAs that can natively support this interface within its PCIe subsystem. Speedster7t FPGAs offer a revolutionary new architecture that Achronix developed to address the highest performance data acceleration challenges.
