Mouser Electronics (Mansfield, TX) has expanded its 3M® line of products with the addition of the Mini Serial Attached SCSI (mini-SAS) connector solutions. The RoHS compliant mini-SAS devices support data transmission rates of 6 Gbps in server and storage applications and reduce the connector size for storage systems currently using SAS 4-lane.

ImageThe 0.8 mm pitch board mount connector provides increased I/O density with channel capabilities. The mini-SAS system offers board designers three different tail lengths on the through-hole shields, kinked tails, and SMT options. They come in vertical- and right-angle versions for internal board mount uses and a right-angle design for external board-mount applications. They conform to the SFF 8086, 8087, and 8088 standards which support the aggregation and cabling of SAS signals into highspeed, four-lane architecture, providing both internal and external configurations. Internal connectors use 36 positions, while external connectors use 26 positions.
