PC/104-compatible bus connectors suit embedded PCs

Harwin is introducing a range of PC/104-compatible bus connectors for embedded PC applications, designed for stacking boards with a common bus. The devices meet industry standards for embedded PCs, have a maximum 3A current rating, and a press-fit tail option enables solder-free attachment.

Configured as 32 + 32 ways, the connector supports 8 bit systems; a 20 + 20 way device combined with the 32 + 32 way offering supports 16 bit systems. Connectors are available with traditional solder tails, carrying a maximum 3A current, or with press-fit tail and a 2A maximum rating.

Components are produced in stack-through and non-stack-through versions; the stack-through option allows many modules to be stacked without the need for multiple connector types.

Wendy Bourne, Technical Support Engineer at Harwin, comments: "Over the past decade, the PC architecture has become an accepted platform for far more than desktop applications. New PC/104 industry-standard connectors can be employed in numerous markets such as consumer electronics, test and measurement, industrial controls, medical, computing and automotive."
