Kyoto [Japan], May 22 (ANI): Kyocera Corporation, a Japanese multinational ceramics and electronics manufacturer, has announced its new 5656 Series electronic board-to-board connectors, featuring 0.5mm pitch and a proprietary floating structure that delivers the world's highest mating tolerance with heat resistance up to +125°C.
The new connectors, appropriate for use in car navigation systems, in-vehicle infotainment and millimeter wave radar, are now available to support manufacturers worldwide.
Advancements in automotive infotainment and driver-assist technologies are creating new demand for electronic connectors that meet two key requirements.
First, they must operate reliably amid high temperatures; and second, they must maintain stable contact position against vibration and shock.
Kyocera's new 0.5mm-pitch Board-to-Board connectors are specifically designed for these requirements, with heat resistance ranging from -40°C to +125°C and a proprietary floating mechanism that provides mating tolerance of ±1.0mm (F/P*2=200%) in both the X and Y directions, which is 2.2 times larger than Kyocera's conventional connector products.
This enhanced mating tolerance ensures reliable connections by compensating for a greater degree of location mating error and mounting slippage during assembly, as well as vibration and shock in the operating environment.
Kyocera continues to expand its automotive electronic connector line with new products offering enhanced features and performance. By providing new solutions for emerging requirements, the company aims to contribute to the advancement of the industry.
The 5656 Series connectors are available in two configurations: a straight type that mounts perpendicular to the circuit board for vertical insertion, and a right-angle type that mounts parallel to the board for horizontal insertion.
Also available are two specialised types that meet with a wide range of requirements - the power terminals attached type accommodates high current such as power supply purpose. Combinations of signal and power pins are also available.
The structure of the connectors enables users to inspect the tail area to mount a board visually from above or by using an optical inspection device, thus enhancing operation efficiency. (ANI)
