  3. 3. RADSOK® Technology What is it? <ul><li>RADSOK® technology is based on a stamped and formed flat grid, uniquely twisted into a hyperbolic geometry to provide robust, high density contact to the mating pin contact. Unlike most other pin and socket solutions, the RADSOK® also utilizes the tensile strength properties of the flat, high conductivity alloy grid. This provides the high normal forces required for conductivity while also providing a large conductive surface area. Correspondingly, low voltage drop and low temperature rise are achieved while maintaining low insertion forces </li></ul><ul><li>Features: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>RADSOK® = rad ial so c k et contact </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stamped and formed hyperbolic grid </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>High pin-to-socket interface ratio </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Low mating forces </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Low contact resistance </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>High current rating (50% greater than standard contacts) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Extreme durability (20,000+ mating cycles </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ultimate reliability </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. History of RADSOK® <ul><li>The RADSOK® design was invented and patented by K&K Stamping located just outside of Detroit, Michigan. </li></ul><ul><li>After years of success in the automotive market, Amphenol took interest in the technology as a way to differentiate our standard products. </li></ul><ul><li>Amphenol acquired the RADSOK® rights from K&K Stamping on September 1, 2002 and is now considered one of Amphenol’s proprietary premium products. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Bringing Power to Printed Circuit Boards <ul><li>Modern day electronics require significant increases in the amount of power needed for printed circuit board applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Conventional interconnects can not handle the higher power requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>The most common solution to increase power to the PCB is to increase the thickness of the copper layers in the board. This is usually very costly and traps heat within the PCB. </li></ul><ul><li>Other options are to bring additional wires to the board which creates a “Bundle” of wire. This option takes up space on the PCB and does not allow proper air flow, which can cause failures. </li></ul><ul><li>To simplify the application design, users incorporate busbars to bring power to the board. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The RADSOK® Solution <ul><li>Amphenol Industrial Operations has developed three new </li></ul><ul><li>compact, high amperage connectors for high current, </li></ul><ul><li>single-point connections to printed circuit boards (PCB’s). </li></ul><ul><li>Our new interconnect products are: </li></ul><ul><li>RADSERT™ , </li></ul><ul><li>PowerBlok™ </li></ul><ul><li>PGY™ </li></ul><ul><li>Each of these products uses our proprietary </li></ul><ul><li>RADSOK® technology to deliver more power </li></ul><ul><li>to the PCB and are ROHS Compliant </li></ul>
  7. 7. RADSERT™ <ul><li>RADSERTS ™ are available with either a 2.4mm or 3.6mm RADSOK®. 2.4mm is rated for up to 35 AMPS, 3.6mm is rated for up to 70 AMPS. Both are available in either a “Press-fit” or solder version. </li></ul><ul><li>The design of the board determines if the RADSERT™ will be connected during board manufacturing by a solder re-flow process or press-fit manually after manufacturing. </li></ul><ul><li>The press-fit RADSERT™ is designed for board thicknesses of .250” +/- .025”. The press-fit design consists of a RADSOK® and special RADSERT™ holder which are easily press-fit into plated through holes in the PCB. </li></ul><ul><li>The Solder version RADSERTS™ are available for a variety of board thicknesses and are connected to the board by a solder re-flow process. Refer to the Price Guideline page for detailed descriptions and sizes of our solder RADSERTs™. </li></ul><ul><li>Custom sizes can be designed for specific board applications. </li></ul>
  8. 8. POWERBLOK™ <ul><li>Housed in a small package of ½” x ½” </li></ul><ul><li>or (12.7mm X 12.7mm) PowerBlok’s™ provide up to 70 AMPS of power to a board. </li></ul><ul><li>The component’s backplane power interface uses compliant pins, which are press-fit into the board, enabling a solid connection and an even signal flow. </li></ul><ul><li>PowerBlok™ features a radial design that ensures many points of contact as well as a touch-proof cover for safer operation. </li></ul><ul><li>Available with a 3.0mm RADSOK® connector, the small footprint is a definite advantage for engineers who are limited in their PCB design with size and weight requirements. </li></ul>
  9. 9. PGY’S™ <ul><li>The PGY ™ is our orthogonal card edge connector available in two sizes, 3.6mm carrying up to 70 AMPS and 5.7mm carrying up to 120 AMPS, delivering the highest amperage in the smallest package. </li></ul><ul><li>The PGY™ is connected to the PCB through a solder reflow process. </li></ul><ul><li>The busbar pin will mate horizontally with the RADSOK® slightly above the board. The “legs” of the PGY™ dissipate high power evenly in the board. </li></ul><ul><li>PGY’s™ are very valuable to design engineers as they can achieve valuable size and weight reductions within their design without compromising the power needed for their board. </li></ul>
