Harwin Plc Key Developments

Horizontal Gecko Connectors from Harwin Reduce PCB Stacking Height

Harwin has introduced a horizontal version of its 1.25mm pitch hi-rel Gecko connector, reducing the stacking height of PCBs to just 5.6mm. Available in the standard eight positions - 6, 10, 12, 16, 20, 26, 34 and 50 – the new style also facilitates mother & daughter board configurations. G125 series connectors offer high performance in a miniature package. The 1.25mm pin spacing results in a 35% space saving over other high-performance connectors such as Micro-D. Connectors can handle 2A per contact and function within a wide temperature range (-65 to +150degC) and under extreme vibration (Z axis 100g 6m/s). Other features common to the Gecko connector family include polarization points that prevent mis-mating, easy identification of the No 1 position for fast visual inspection and optional latches that allow simple and fast de-latching. Optional special tooling is available for use in confined applications. The horizontal style connectors feature a new mechanical hold-down latching system for additional connection security.

Harwin Expands EZBoardWare Test Points Range with Two Small Size Versions for PCBs

Harwin has recently expanded its EZBoardWare portfolio with new, small size and low profile versions of surface mount Test Points. The two new Test Points are designed to match the 2012 and 1608 metric (0805 and 0603 imperial) electronic package sizes, whilst providing secure connection points and allowing test engineers to clip on industry standard micro test clips. Harwin's small size surface mount EZBoardWare Test Points are fully auto-placeable to PCBs, minimizing installation costs. Available in a range of form factors to match the size of the customer's electronic package size and in three stock sizes for maximum choice, the components have been designed to provide specific targets for test engineers to use when testing PCBs, permitting a clip on facility and allowing hands free testing. The main target applications can be found in most markets, ranging from medical and aerospace markets through to the industrial, instrumentation and control systems environment.

Harwin Delivers Package of Effective Surface Mount EMI/RFI Solutions Designed to Simplify Design and Manufacture

Harwin have announced a package of surface mount products that can be used separately or in combination to deliver an effective EMI/RFI solution. All the products contained within Harwinâ s popular EZ-BoardWare range are designed to take advantage of surface mount technology, simplifying and speeding manufacture, reducing costs and increasing quality. EZ-BoardWare Shield Cans are simply pressed onto pre-positioned surface mount EZ-Shield Clips forming a Faraday cage around sensitive ICs and electronic circuitry. This saves expensive secondary assembly and facilitates rework. A range of can sizes and clips are available. Attenuation performance up to 24dB can be achieved, depending on frequency and configuration. The cans have a simple, five-sided box design, which is mechanically robust and more cost-effective than fence and cover types. Used with EZ-BoardWare Shield Can Clips, EZ-Shield Cans resist vibration and remain securely retained on the PCB. As well as simplifying maintenance and adjustment, auto placement of the EZ-BoardWare Clips eliminates post-assembly soldering and de-soldering, significantly reducing PCB damage caused by local overheating on the board. In order to facilitate and expedite design, Harwin now offers these EZ-BoardWare EMI/RFI protection screening products in kit form, enabling designers to rapidly construct PCB cans at minimal cost for development purposes. The low cost kits comprise two 80mm x 60mm x 0.3mm thick Nickel Silver sheets that are pre-scribed on a 5mm grid to allowing easy cutting and forming, enabling the user to produce a shield can of the required dimensions. EZ-Shield Can Clips which hold the cans securely in place are also included.
