Developed for high speed telecom backplane and PC104 for embedded systems, the signal connector for CompactPCI hardware platform is a classic example for the use of hardmetric connectors. The ‘hm’ 2mm is a gas tight, high density pin-and-socket connector which meets the IEC-61076 international standard. These connectors are now being used more and more in the computer / peripheral market as well as the industrial and instrumentation markets. Important parameters such as the fixing, shielding and coding of the printed circuit boards are compatible regardless of the individual application.
