Custom connector configuration for extended board to board stacking height
Application challenge: a customer needs to stack mezzanine boards with board to board dimension greater than standard connectors can address. Additionally, they could not accommodate the additional cost of a cable assembly and therefore intended to use standard board to board connectors set as standoff for the boards.
GCT solution: understanding that customer would like to keep their cost down by using standard connectors set for the extended stacking height, we proposed to use a set of elevated header and elevated socket, mate them together and secure them with high temperature epoxy, thus creating a pin header that not only can span the extended board to board distance, but can also mate with standard sockets. Customer is very happy with our proposed solution.
