ITT Interconnect Solutions is supporting CFast - the latest small form factor removable storage standard to be released from the Compact Flash Association (CFA) - with a line of two-piece ultrasonic weld cover sets and 24-way connectors for CFast.
ITT's tough CFast covers feature a plastic frame around the perimeter and guide posts that simplify assembly. Once assembled, the covers are ultrasonically welded together in a continuous weld joint around the perimeter of the card. This process is claimed to provide the most rigid CFast products in the industry and allows OEMs to streamline their manufacturing processes to deliver cost-effective products while maximising production efficiency.
CFast cover sets and 24-way connectors are available in either Type I or Type II packages. The surface-mount connectors are rated at 1.5A per pin and are designed to exhibit no discontinuity greater than 100ns. Total mating force is 28.8N maximum at 25mm/minute; total unmating force is 3.7N minimum, 24.5N maximum at 25mm/minute; and durability is 10,000 mating cycles. Operating temperature range is -55 to +85degC.
