The 68-position, SAS PCIe receptacle and plug connectors enable implementation of high-speed Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard disk drive (HDD) interface as well as Peripheral Component Express (PCIe) based devices. This connector conforms to SFF8639 and is capable of meeting 12Gb/s HDDs or PCle based devices at 8Gb/s.

The SAS PCIe connectors system is designed to support SATA, SAS and PCIe based devices. The mechanical dimensioning and signal assignments for the six lane connector receptacle allows intermateability with the unshielded dual port serial attachment plug connectors that have been developed in accordance with SFF8482 and SFF8680 (SAS 3.0). Staggered contact lengths provide sequential mating of contacts to enable hot plugging. Molded guide posts provide angled lead-in to compensate for connector misalignment, allowing the device plug and receptacle to self-align during mating process. Most connectors also feature stamped retention clips that provide additional mechanical strength for robust PCB attachment.

The high-speed serial interface is designed to be backward compatible to SFF8482 (3Gb/s) and subsequently 6Gb/s SAS or SATA connectors. It enables both technologies using the same interface for cost-effective SATA or SAS drives or higher performance SSD drives for server applications. ICC offers a wide range of SAS PCIe plug and receptacle connectors for enterprise applications. Vertical and right angle connector configurations provide options for use in servers, server or storage blades, storage backplanes, HDD carriers and HDDs.
