Molex Inc. introduced modular, stackable HS Stac headers that combine the high-speed USCAR-30 HSAutolink interface with the modular, stackable configuration of the 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.
The automotive industry-standard interface, known as USCAR-30, supports USB 2.0 requirements and other high-speed technologies, including low voltage differential signaling 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 shroud-stackable formation compatible with the widely deployed Molex Stac64 header family.
This design creates a multi-bay, high-speed connection system to meet growing in-vehicle terminal requirements for devices and modules in automotive and commercial transportation applications.
HS Stac headers mate with a range of existing HSAutoLink cable assemblies for a complete connection solution.
