TE Connectivity's Z-PACK TinMan backplane connector family is a cost-effective solution for customers searching for a high density, high performance backplane interconnect system. The Z-PACK TinMan connector design follows proven industry backplane convention by offering a fully-protected right angle receptacle for use on daughtercards where handing damage can be a concern when mating to a vertical male header. This connector permits field repairability at either the module or single pin levels.

Ground contacts positioned within each column of the connector, combined with unique lead frame arrangements, enable the Z-PACK TinMan connector to achieve low crosstalk and high throughput performance levels. Reliability is assured with a dual point of contact mating interface and compliant pin interface to the printed circuit board.
