Molex Stackable Right-Angle HS Stac Headers

Molex Stackable Right-Angle HS Stac Headers

Molex introduced 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,” said 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,” added 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.
