Suited best for aerospace, ground vehicle, marine and missile defense applications, these HSLF connectors feature a wide operating temperature range and excellent thermal stability with VITA 42.3 pinout.

“Technology changes rapidly and it’s always important for us to quickly adapt and solve for market needs. We know signal integrity strength is crucial for reliable high-speed signal transfer within the environments this type of connector is used,” said Jason Dorwart, product manager for TE’s Aerospace, Defense and Marine division. “We also designed this particular connector to be easier to remove from the board and are truly excited to continue on with our Mezalok connector legacy by introducing our low-force product offering.”

The highly reliable Mezalok HSLF uses the reliable ball grid array printed circuit board surface mount. The 114-position connector is compliant to VITA 61 standards and additional positions and stack heights are available.
