Minitek™ is FCI’s brand for board-to-board and wire/cable-to-board connectors in 2.00mm pitch. The Minitek™ product range includes PCB Card Connectors, Shrouded and Unshrouded headers and IDC/CTW receptacles. FCI is adding five new series of Minitek™ Headers to its product range, dedicated to Pin-in-Paste soldering processes. The connectors are available in surface mount and through hole, double-row versions, in either straight or right angle orientation from 4 to 40 positions. The maximum current rating is 2A per contact.
This is now the most complete 2.00mm modular system on the market. Designers now have an extensive solution for all types of board-to-board, wire-to-board and cable-to-board interconnections on this pitch size. One particular advantage of Minitek™ over other systems of this type is its intermateability. The new active latch cable housing, for example, is unique in that it is not part of a separate system, but mates with the standard headers.
