FCI Serial ATA Backplane Connectors offer available solder tail options that support use on 1.58mm to 2.36mm thick motherboards, while press-fit options extend use to thicker motherboards. “Lead-free” options are available for both Serial ATA connector termination types to aid compliance with lead elimination initiatives. All FCI Serial ATA connectors provide mechanical voltage keying and end latches for module retention and ejection. The latch towers at the ends if the connector provide angled lead-in ramps and slots that aid module alignment, and FCI's low insertion force socket design provides easy installation of memory modules in desktop computers, servers and workstations. FCI SATA insertion force is typically less than 22 pounds for our socket design. The through-mount Serial ATA connector versions provide options for molded orientation posts or metal forklocks to provide retention prior to soldering. Serial ATA Connectors can be supplied in black, blue, or any of six other available resin colors. The press-fit Serial ATA connectors feature a molded orientation post and are available with either black or blue connector bodies. The press-fit Serial ATA connectors also offer an option for translucent latches that can be used in combination with LEDs to provide a visual indication of slot status.
