KYOCERA AVX Releases New Horizontal Wire-to-Board Connectors for Industrial and Commercial Applications

The new UL-approved 9296-400 Series horizontal poke-home connectors have the industry’s lowest height profile for 18–26AWG wire, can also mate with 1mm-diameter jumper pins, are available with 1–6 pins on a 4mm pitch, and are rated for up to 600VAC/DC, 10A, and 130°C.

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C., April 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, expanded its line of wire-to-board connectors with the release of the new UL-approved 9296-400 Series 4mm-pitch horizontal poke-home connectors.

The new 9296-400 Series connectors are designed to enable the quick, easy, cost-effective, and reliable board termination of discrete 18–26AWG solid or stranded wires or 1mm-diameter jumper pins in a broad range of industrial and commercial applications. The series has a compact, high-temperature, and halogen-free SMT package with the industry’s lowest height profile for 18–26AWG wire and a UL94 V-0 flammability rating. It is available with up to six proven-robust, 2.5mm, tin-plated, dual-beam phosphor bronze contacts on a 4mm pitch and with UL94 V-0 glass-filled nylon housings in eight different colors. It is also available with an optional visibility window to enable the visual verification of full wire insertion and with optional pass-through holes instead of wire stops to enable mating with KYOCERA AVX’s 10-9296 Series 1mm-diameter jumper pins.

The new 9296-400 Series 4mm-pitch horizontal poke-home connectors support simple strip-and-poke-home wire insertion and twist-and-pull wire extraction, enabling easy factory and field termination, and deliver high repeatability, maximum mechanical stability, and superlative wire retention strength in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications including machine controls, motors, drives, solenoids, sensors, fans, and pumps, commercial building controls ranging from sensors to fire and security systems, smart grid meters, breakers, and panels, and LED bulbs, fixtures, signage, and streetlights. They are rated for up to 600VACRMS or VDC, 6–10A UL, 4–8A cUL, operating temperatures extending from -40°C to +130°C, and five mating cycles. Lead-time for the series is currently nine weeks.

“The new 9296-400 Series poke-home connectors add several new combinations of orientations, pin counts, pitches, AWG sizes, and current ratings to our already-extensive range of wire-to-board connectors for industrial and commercial applications,” said Joe Falcone, director of global marketing for KYOCERA AVX. “The new series is available with up to six durable, high-strength, and high-reliability phosphor bronze contacts with lead-free tin plating, which is three more contacts than most competing solutions, and like the rest of our connector line, can be customized to suit unique application requirements.”

Demo: Achronix Speedster7t 2D NoC vs. Traditional FPGA Routing

Sponsored by Achronix

This demonstration compares an FPGA design utilizing Achronix Speedster7t 2D Network on Chip (NoC) for routing signals with the FPGA device, versus using traditional FPGA routing. The 2D NoC provides a 40% reduction in logic resources required with 40% less compile time needed versus using traditional FPGA routing. Speedster7t FPGAs are optimized for high-bandwidth workloads and eliminate the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional FPGAs.

56 Gbps PAM4 Performance in FPGA Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Samtec

If you are working on an FPGA design, the choice of a connector solution can be a crucial element in your system design. Your FPGA connector solution needs to support the highest of speeds, small form factors, and emerging architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton joins Matthew Burns to chat about you can get 56 Gbps PAM4 performance in your next FPGA application. We take a closer look at Samtec’s AcceleRate® HD High-Density Arrays, the details of Samtec’s Flyover Technology, and why Samtec’s complete portfolio of high-performance interconnects are a perfect fit for 56 Gbps PAM4 FPGA Applications.
