OVERVIEW
Mobile devices are increasingly thinner, yet demands are also ever-increasing for more power and higher signal performance. As a result, smaller, lower profile and higher efficiency connectors are needed to optimize the design and maximize performance. The X-Beam™ Connector provides a unique solution in its ability to support both high current and high signal speed in one design. By integrating the historically proven Neoconix micro-spring design into an over-molded thermoplastic carrier, the X-Beam connector enables superior electrical performance coupled with ease of assembly in a ~ 1mm total mated height solution.
