Low profile mid-plane RJ45 connectors serve IoT designs
BEL Stewart Connector series of low profile Mid-Plane RJ45 connectors allows the device to straddle the board edge and utilize space above and below the printed circuit board (pcb) compared to traditional RJ45 connectors that are only designed to mount above the pcb. Equipment designers will gain valuable space and savings in applications where the RJ45 would typically be the tallest component on their pcb by utilizing a Mid-Plane RJ45 reducing their product height by up to 25%. Products deliver a high-speed solution for a wide array of IoT applications, including servers/switches, video game systems, and portable storage devices. Devices support 1 and 2.5G data rates and 100MHz transmission frequencies. Products are available in 1×1 and 1×4 configurations, LED options-yellow/green and bi-colour, and 0.085” and 0.125” tail lengths, and shielded to enhance EMI performance.
