Circuit Assembly Releases its SCA2 Plugs in Multiple Configurations
Irvine, California (May 2004) - Circuit Assembly announces the release of its SCA2 plugs to further enhance its SCA2 product line. SCA2 (Single Connector Attachment-2) is a hard drive interface developed for SCSI and FC-AL systems. The newly designed plugs were developed as the mates to the Circuit Assembly receptacles, which are installed on a backplane to mate directly with SCA2 plugs installed on a disk drive. CA's SCA2 plugs are currently available in the following configurations: through-hole, compliant pin, right angle through-hole and surface mount.
Incorporating power, options block and data signals into one single-mated connector pair, the SCA2 receptacles and plugs eliminate the need for cable assemblies and provide a substantial cost reduction to manufacturers. With SCA2, manufacturers are also able to use only two connectors as opposed to the previous twelve (three double-ended cable assemblies and their mating connectors) for each disk drive attachment.
All of CA's SCA2 connectors consist of staggered contact heights to enable hot-plugging. Additionally, alignment guides on both ends of the SCA2 connectors permit blindmateability. Circuit Assembly's SCA2 receptacle configurations include standard-height through-hole pin, extended-height through-hole, standard-height compliant pin and extended-height compliant pin, as well as the patent pending LokDownTM System.
