This new system from Molex is a complete, compact solution that offers a 0.80mm (0.031-inch) pitch and can carry a continuous current of 1.5 amperes, with the ability to carry up to 3 amperes, depending on the circuit configuration.

This solution is available in a right-angle SMT receptacle version and both wire and PCB plug versions that are suited for wire-to-board or board-to-board applications. For docking applications, the HandyLink connector system offers both perpendicular and parallel-mounted versions of the cradle connector.

The connector system includes a wide array of cable assemblies and accessories with full turnkey capability on finished cradle assemblies.

The HandyLink SMT Receptacle connector incorporates a molded sealed design that supports various Ingress Protection requirements, as well as a high-temperature thermoplastic housing that withstands lead-free processing; this version allows for 20,000 mating cycles. Other features include SMT receptacle leads to allow population to both sides of the PCB; low-profile height of 3.5mm and compact width; integrated, solderable tabs that provide PCB grounding and retention to PCB during processing; and tape and reel packaging for robotic pick and place processing.

Pricing varies according to production volumes and can range from $0.70 to $0.90 (U.S.) for connectors at volume and from $0.80 to $12 for the cable assemblies and accessories.
