ETTERS, PA (November 28, 2006) — FCI, a leading developer of connectors and interconnect systems, is offering a shunt developer’s kit. The kit includes a number of shunts, with varying dimensions, platings and mechanical features to support many applications. This variety of shunts provides design flexibility with 2mm, 2.54mm, and multi-position pitch options, as well as mechanical, plating, color and low-cost options.
“The shunt developer’s kit provides engineers and designers with a variety of shunts and headers that enable them to design the perfect system to fit their needs,” said Sean Riley, regional marketing manager for FCI. “Design flexibility has become increasingly important with the growth of board technology. The ability to test each shunt in the design of the PCB is key in determining the best solution for the particular application.”
The compact, cost-efficient AirMax VS power connectors are ideal for applications where more powerful processors are continuously being added, such as servers and storage systems, switches and routers, medical electronics and instrumentation.
