Harwin is announcing ex-stock availability of a range of competitively priced Firewire (IEEE 1394) connectors capable of transferring data between devices at 100, 200 or 400Mbit/s. Two styles are available: a six pin version that provides power handling, and a reduced-size four pin device.
The connectors feature a female surface-mount configuration combined with through-board hold-down tags to provide a secure mounting to the PCB. The range is fully RoHS-compliant and available with a selectively-plated gold finish. A metallic outer shell provides good shielding for signal integrity. Current rating per pin is 1.5A, devices are voltage proof to 500V AC, contact resistance is 50mOhm and insulation resistance is 1000MOhm. Operating temperature is -40 to +85degC.
Product Manager Paul Gillam comments: "These new devices fully conform to the requirements of IEEE 1394, yet offer a great deal of flexibility. They are available off-the-shelf and suit applications including laptops/PCs, digital cameras, set-top boxes, PDAs, camcorders, industrial equipment, office automation and medical devices."
