LISLE, Ill. -- January 23, 2012

Molex Incorporated has announced that its Stac64™ Stackable Connection System
is now validated against the most stringent specifications from the major key
automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Germany, France and
Japan. In addition, new patents have been awarded for the Stac64 design.

“Since its launch two years ago, we have undertaken the validation of the
Stac64 product line towards all key automotive OEM specifications surpassing
the most stringent requirements,” said Selvan Wilhelm, global product manager,
Molex. “We are the only connector manufacturer in the world to achieve such
performance levels with certification from the major automotive OEMs. It is a
testament to Molex’s immense knowledge and experience gained by working
closely with global automotive manufacturers.”

Designed originally as a standard product system based on USCAR-2 Class II
mechanical and electrical performance characteristics for unsealed connector
applications, the Stac64 design has since secured new patents relating to the
stackable header. “This design evolution differentiates the Stac64 family from
the standard products available on the market today, resulting in a new
product specification for the Stac64 family, as well as a new Design
Validation Plan Report (DVPR) worldwide,” added Wilhelm.

The Stac64 stackable connection system allows OEMs greater design flexibility
to support both low-level signal requirements as well as power applications
upwards of 30.0A. It also allows the manufacturers to use header assemblies as
stand-alone components or to gang multiple headers together to support a large
range of signal and power needs for devices and modules.
