Samtec’s mPOWER Ultra Micro Power Connectors Now at Mouser

Connector System Supports up to 21A in Space-Saving 2mm Pitch

May 10, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the mPOWER™ ultra-micro power connector system from Samtec. Offering current ratings up to 21 A per blade in a 2 mm pitch, mPOWER connectors provide an ultra-small, high-power solution with exceptional design flexibility for power-only or power-and-signal applications.

Samtec’s mPOWER connector system, available from Mouser Electronics, features gold-plated power blades and frees board space compared to other 21 A solutions. Engineers can use mPOWER as a standalone high-power solution or with one of Samtec’s high-speed connector systems, such as SEARAY™ or Tiger Eye™, for a unique two-piece power and signal/ground solution.

With stack heights from 5 mm to 12 mm, mPOWER can be easily added to new or existing architectures. Further design flexibility is available with a choice of 2, 3, 4, or 5 power blades, each of which has two-stage mating and can be selectively loaded to achieve any specific creepage and clearance requirements.

RedFit IDC SKEDD Connector

Sponsored by Wurth Electronics and Mouser Electronics

Why attach a header connector to your PCB when you really don’t need one? If you’re plugging a ribbon cable into your board, particularly for a limited-use function such as provisioning, diagnostics, or testing, it can be costly and clunky to add a header connector to your BOM, and introduce yet another component to pick and place. Wouldn’t it be great if you could plug directly into your board with no connector required on the PCB side? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Ben Arden from Wurth Electronics about Redfit, a slick new connector solution that plugs directly into standard via holes on your PCB.
