AirBorn is pleased to offer a complete line of MicroD (M-Series) high-reliability flex jumper cables to satisfy your board-to-board/ box-to-box interconnect needs. The flex jumpers are shipped with hardware attached in a variety of configurations and range in length from 3″ to 36″ as standard. Longer lengths are possible on single- and double-sided flex applications. Rigid flex jumpers are also available beginning at 4″ lengths***. Higher temperature solutions greater than 250°F are also an option. A variety of quick-turn, low-volume connector solutions are possible from straddle mount (SMT) to plated through-hole (PTH).
AirBorn introduces a Micro-D, multi-gigabit high-speed connector, designed to meet the performance requirements of MIL-DTL-83513, where applicable. This rugged connector system is designed to handle LVDS serial bus signals like IEEE 1394, Ethernet, serial rapid IO, etc. This versatile product has a range from one to ten high-speed modules and up to fifty signal contacts making it ideal for most high-reliability applications.
The AirBorn microSI product line is designed to meet requirements for high-speed/signal integrity applications while still delivering the reliability customers have come to expect from AirBorn. MicroSI delivers flexibility by design, offering vertical board mount, right angle board mount, and cable I/O configurations supporting 1X, 4X, and 8X 100 Ω and 85 Ω differential serial buses. Its balanced design limits skew within pairs. The MIL-DTL-83513 (Micro-D) qualified contact system and metal shells ensure ruggedness and durability.
RC & RCII
The AirBorn stackable compliant connector family is one of AirBorn’s solutions for high-density, board-to-board stacking applications. This connector family is available in 0.075” contact spacing and 100 Ω and 85 Ω differential serial buses.
- Wide variety of standard pin/tail lengths accommodate any board-to-board spacing
- 0.075” contact spacing
- Reliable “eye of the needle”-compliant section design eliminates soldering
- BeCu contacts (special high-conductivity, high-temperature alloy)
- Very robust socket contact (low-stress design)
- Individually repairable contacts
The RZ family of high-density, board-to-board or flex circuit stacking applications is unique, offering users a reliable one-piece contact system. Its solder-less interconnect is compressed or “sandwiched” under pressure between parallel printed wiring boards or between a printed wiring board and other electronic components such as an IC or multichip module.
- 0.050” staggered grid array
- Up to 400 contacts per square inch
- BeCu contacts for reliable mating
- Standard heights from 0.100” to 0.350”
- Customer configurations available to meet your specific design needs.
The AirBorn verSI (versatile connectors with high-speed signal integrity) open-pin field product line is designed to meet the requirements for high-speed/high-density/signal integrity 100 Ω and 85 Ω differential serial bus applications while still delivering the reliability customers have come to expect from AirBorn.
