FCI (Etters, PA) has released the FCI MezzoStak™ 0.5-mmpitch mezzanine connector, a “mates-to-self” design that uses the same part number for both mated sides. Guidance features assist users with handling, dual-point terminals as - sure redundant electrical contact, and polarization prevents errors in PCB placement and mating. The connector operates in the extreme temperature range of -40 to 125°C. Additionally, its design insures performance up to 50 mating cycles.

The connector, which is available in a standard version that provides solderable hold-downs for supplemental PCB support and a short version that eliminates hold-downs to conserve PCB space, has a PCB stack height range of 4-7 mm.
