PCI Connectors and Card Edge Connectors

25 5V/32 Bit Connector

Meritec offers the following connectors in their PCI family.

25 3,3V and 5V/32 Bit PCI Connectors: allow a 32 Bit PCI daughter card to mate at a 25 angle to the printed circuit board (PCB).

Right Angle 3,3V and 5V/32 and 64 Bit Connectors: offer low profile, right angle stacking heights which save space while allowing horizontal PCI card mounting.

2x25 Right Angle Card Edge Connectors: provide horizontal, 50 position card edge mounting and an extra slot for data expansion from the PCB when designing unique bus architecture. Designed for companion usage with the 3,3V and 5V/64 Bit PCI connectors.

All Meritec PCI connector footprints are identical to the vertical mount versions for joint compatibility in in the PCB design.

  • Horizontal PCI card mating
  • Meets all PCI local bus standards (revision 2.0) for a 3,3V or 5V/64 bit configuration
  • Plastic cover protects unused PCI connectors from dust and debris, and supports connector for hybrid soldering applications requiring convection/IR heating
  • Mounting holes for board attachment
  • Through hole solder mount application compatible with wave soldering process
  • Card mounting heights from 0,23" to 0,657" (see layout drawing for height table)
  • Solves space problem in applications where card edge connector is needed and where low clearance above PCB prohibits use of vertical configuration
  • Insert molded in liquid crystal polymer for stability in hybrid board applications involving surface mount components
  • Offers PCB design flexibility
  • Designed to mate with 0,062" thick PCB
  • Choice of rivets or retention clips as hold down fasteners
