The LPM product family has 19 different configurations, with pin counts ranging from 12 positions to 82 positions. The family leverages Neoconix’s highly developed PCBeamTM technology. The company has filed over 60 patents on PCBeamTM technology and has shipped over 1 Billion contacts in the past 10 years. The technology provides the unique capability to combine high-speed signals and power connections within the same connector. Neoconix low profile connectors are used today in applications running up to 28Gbps and at greater than 5A of current.

“Neoconix is proud to continue leading the electrical connector marketplace in terms of thinness,” said Woody Maynard, VP of Marketing for Neoconix. “These connectors are literally thinner than a business card, which not only saves space, but also results in an extremely short signal path for low resistance and excellent signal integrity. Moreover, the LPM family represents the first full line of standard products from Neoconix enabling customers to realize the fastest time-to-market (TtM) and ramp-to-volume (RtV).”

The LPM family of connectors is available today off the shelf through Neoconix and its Sales Representatives. Any LPM connector may be ordered to support a production ramp of 2+ Million units per month.

Neoconix is best known for rapid development and production of custom electrical connectors (often within 2 weeks) at very low Non-Recurring Engineering costs (NRE). Neoconix will maintain its custom connector solution and will allow customer to define custom connectors based on a standard LPM solution.

The full range of LPM electrical connectors are available now with pricing below $0.015 per contact in volume production.
