LISLE, Ill. -- April 9, 2013

Molex Incorporated introduces modular, stackable HS Stac™ headers that combine
the high-speed USCAR-30 HSAutolink™ interface with the modular, stackable
configuration of the versatile Stac64™ connector system. With a 0.80mm pitch,
the new HS Stac headers achieve greater design flexibility and space savings
in PCB trace routing for in-vehicle infotainment and telematic devices.

“Expanding in-vehicle functionality means increasing terminal requirements for
devices and modules,” says Laurent Stickeir, global product manager, Molex.
“Customers wanting to use or already using the Stac64 system for I/O
connections can now use HS Stac headers to create custom, ganged multi-bay
headers, combining I/O with high-speed signal without expensive tooling
investment. In addition to cost savings and simplified assembly, this allows
customers greater design flexibility and saves application space.”

The automotive industry-standard interface, known as USCAR-30, supports USB
2.0 requirements and other high-speed technologies, including low voltage
differential signaling (LVDS) and Ethernet for infotainment, telematic
devices, car stereo and navigation systems, and driver-assist electronic
modules. HS Stac right-angle headers package the USCAR-30 interface found in
the Molex HSAutoLink family in a rugged, shroud-stackable formation compatible
with the widely deployed Molex Stac64 header family. This design creates a
unique multi-bay, high-speed connection system to meet growing in-vehicle
terminal requirements for devices and modules in automotive and commercial
transportation applications.

“Molex brings a depth of understanding and expertise in high-speed data
transmission in telecommunications, consumer electronics and other markets
beyond transportation,” adds Stickeir. “We have been instrumental in the
definition and validation of the industry-standard USCAR-30 interface ― a
reliable, open, proven connection system. In addition to the standard
mechanical and environmental requirements of the automotive industry, Molex
also brings know-how and technical capabilities in the validation of
electrical link performance.”

HS Stac headers mate with a range of existing HSAutoLink cable assemblies for
a complete connection solution. For additional information visit: To receive information on the full range of
