Heilind Stocking TE Connectivity's ITB Card Edge Connector

WILMINGTON, Mass., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Heilind Electronics, the largest distributor of interconnect products in North America, is now stocking TE Connectivity's inverted thru board (ITB) card edge connector, which provides a direct power connection between driver boards and the underside of LED array boards. This surface mounted connector was developed for LED lighting applications and other devices to provide a cableless, space-saving power connection between a driver board and LED array PCB. When this connector is top-mounted on an array PCB, the perpendicular mating direction into the underside of the array PCB makes the ITB card edge connector ideal for space-limited applications.

Key features of the ITB card edge connector include:

  • Surface mounted at the same time as other devices on the PCB, eliminating secondary processes
  • A one-piece mating solution for faster and easier assembly operation
  • A low-profile, space-saving design. The 1.5mm height above the PCB minimizes LED light obstruction
  • Offered in two versions to accept either 1.0mm or 1.2mm thick mating PCBs
  • Surface mount hold downs provide stability during driver board mating and unmating
  • Designed with round corners to minimize shadowing
  • Flat-top surface allows for vacuum pick up
  • Tape and reel packaging for high-speed SMT processing
