New Hirose VIP Partnership Makes DF36 Series Easier to Design In

Hirose has partnered with Micro Interconnects to help design engineers specify and design in DF36 board-to-fine coaxial cable connectors.

The 0.4mm pitch, 1.5mm mated height board-to-fine coaxial cable connector for displays, instrumentation, and high-definition imaging applications offers high contact reliability and enhanced shielding, making it ideal for applications in space-restricted areas, such as hand-held devices.

“Our customers who wanted to specify the DF36 in their designs often found it challenging to terminate the connector, due to its fine cable and delicate connection,” said Rick van Weezel, vice president of sales and marketing for Hirose Electric USA. “By partnering with Micro Interconnects through our Value Added Interconnect (VIP), we are simplifying the design process for our customers.”

Both the connector design and materials ensure an easy, reliable connection. Enhanced EMC shielding and ground connections are achieved with metal covers on the plug and receptacle that connect to each other with reliable multi-point ground contacts with locks at four locations that confirm mating with a tactile click.

Additionally, formed metal shells on the top and side surfaces form a strong and rigid assembly, while nickel barriers prevent solder wicking in the critical contact areas.

The DF36 connectors have a current rating of 0.25A to 0.1A and a voltage rating of 30 VAC. Contact resistance of the series is 100 mA and the connectors are guaranteed for 30 mating cycles. The DF36 connector range is available in 15-, 25-, 30-, 40-, 45-, and 50-pin versions. They accept AWG 42 to 46 cable sizes. Pricing and lead times are available upon request.
