Introduction Purpose This training module introduces SEARAY connectors from Samtec, their applications and processing recommendations. Outline Introduction to SEARAY connectors SEARAY with single-end configuration & the measurements SEARAY in RapidIO application Processing recommendation Content 14 pages
SEARAY™ SEARAY is a 0.050” high density, high speed board-to-board interconnect system. SEARAY can be mapped as a single-ended application, differential pair application, or a combination of both. The contacts in the SEARAY system are robust and allow for “zippering” when mating and unmating the connectors. Open pin field for maximum routing and design flexibility Up to 500 I/Os Solder charge terminations allows for easier processing Low insertion / extraction forces SEAM SEAF
SEAM / SEAF Series Characteristics 1.27mm x 1.27mm pitch interconnects system Available in 5, 6, 8 and 10 row open pin field arrays 20, 30, 40, and 50 positions High speed rating Single-Ended: up to 9.5GHz / 19Gbps Differential: Optimal Vertical: up to 9.5GHz / 19Gbps Optimal horizontal: up to 10.5GHz / 21Gbps High Density Vertical: up to 8.5GHz / 17Gbps
SEARAY in Single-Ended Configuration Single Ended ImpedanceWaveforms shown are from both the SEAM and SEAF side of the connector.
SEARAY in Single-Ended Configuration Single-Ended Impedance FilteredWaveform shows how the connect works with faster and slower edge rates in theTime Domain.
SEARAY in Single-Ended Configuration TDT Risetime Measurements TDT measurements were taken from the SEAM port to the SEAF port.
SEARAY in Single-Ended Configuration Single-End CrosstalkThe waveforms are for all NEXT measurements. Most FEXT measurementsshowed a Crosstalk of less than 1%.
Processing Recommendations Minimum stencil thickness to be 0.005” (0.12mm) Complete solder pad coverage is critical. Stencil cleaning may need to be monitored more frequently to ensure complete solder pad coverage is maintained. The connector must be fully seated. As the solder charges reflow, the weight of the connector causes it to settle so that the body rests on or slight above the board after processing. Time and temperature must be controlled prior to processing or production. Thermocouples should be placed as close to the solder charger as possible in the center and on the outside edge.
