TE Connectivity's STRADA Mesa Connector system is the latest advancement for Mezzanine (Stacking) applications. It has a pin and socket signal contact design that can be arranged in either High Speed Differential, High Density Single-Ended, and/or Coax patterns. In addition, the STRADA Mesa connector offers integrated Power Contacts, each capable of carrying 10 AMPS of current.

The STRADA Mesa system is being offered in Stack Height Options starting at 8mm and growing to 42mm. This connector system will be offered in 3 sizes which when loaded with all Differential Pairs will yield 40 Pairs, 80 Pairs, and 160 Pairs respectively for each size. Each of these housing sizes can then be configured with the many options described above.

The STRADA Mesa Receptacle Height remains constant throughout the range of Stack Heights. Both the Receptacle and Header are Press-Fit attached to the pcb.
