Custom combo blade and pin headers create flexible interface

Molex has introduced Custom Combo Blade and Pin Setters, which eliminate the need for pin insertion and stitching equipment, creating a more flexible and more robust pin interface.

“Because Custom Combo Blade and Pin Headers are soldered into the board instead of press-fit, it creates a stronger connection,” said Randy Tan, global product manager, Molex. “Not only will Molex customers be able to insert their own customized pins, but the manufacturing process will be streamlined and more efficient.”

In automotive applications from the audio and GPS systems to the engine train, the Custom Combo Blade and Pin Headers will offer the choice of a unique solution for each application. By enabling more pins and blades on each header, there is a reduction in the number of components on each PCB, creating further efficiency.

Because the Custom Combo Blade and Pin Headers have through-hole pins and are SMT capable, there is greater reliability in the interface. The single- and dual-wafer system can be customized for specific board stacking applications, which also can include industrial automation uses.
