SAMTEC PCIE-LP Series low-profile PCI Express edge card connector provides Edge Rate contacts for optimized signal integrity. Device is PCI Express Gen 4 compliant and supports one, four, eight and 16 links for different bandwith requirements. The 1mm pitch device has a low 8mm profile, 3mm less than the standard 11mm profile with an identical 3.50mm contact wipe. This provides more vertical space in a standard size chassis with a set form factor allowing for greater system air flow and space to route other components over the connector. The low 8 mm profile is also an ideal solution for applications where space is limited or dimensions are not pre-determined.
