EdgeLine® High-Speed Edge Card Connectors | Molex

The EdgeLine® portfolio encompasses a dynamic group of product families that take advantage of the compact and clean interface of plated fingers on the edge of a printed circuit board. These one-piece solutions are cost effective in that they are only required when a peripheral interface or upgrade card is populated and have a customizable card-edge interface where designers can specify first-mate, last-break designations as well as shorter stubs for high-speed communications. The EdgeLine family delivers a low-cost, flexible and scalable solution for low-to-mid range telecom, computing and storage applications.

EdgeLine vertical connectors are one-piece, press-fit, low-cost connectors with integrated ground blades to support 12.5 Gbps high-speed signal transmissions, circuit size ranges from 20 to 294 contacts and the ability to accommodate 1.57 or 2.36mm board thicknesses.

EdgeLine Signal Power (ESP) connectors deliver vertical, single-piece solutions for high-speed and high-power applications, offering an integrated power bay capable of managing 50.0A of power in conjunction with neighboring signal bays supporting 12.5 Gbps signal pairs.

EdgeLine CoPlanar connectors have individually grounded, insert-molded wafers for optimized 25 Gbps high-speed signals and the capability to optimize slower-speed single-ended and power circuits with a press-fit, coplanar mount to the motherboard. This family offers integrated power up to 50.0A and accommodates 1.57 or 2.36mm board thicknesses.

EdgeLine CoEdge connectors are low-profile, one-piece, 25 Gbps edge-card-to-edge-card solution, ideal for accommodating varying board thicknesses from the motherboard to a daughter card and compact for unobstructed airflow cooling.

EdgeLine CoBridge Connectors are low high-speed coplanarity connectors. This one-piece connector allows removability in the z-axis while the PCBs remain in place. Additionally, the connector can be mounted on the top side of two PCBs or inverted and mounted underneath the PCBs, while also connecting different PCB thicknesses. The CoBridge supports high-speed differential pair speeds up to 15 Gbps, single ended up to 3GHz and power contacts with multiple pin configurations.
