...with the introduction of the next generation FX-2c (Convergent) Series compatible with the standard 2.0mm x 2.0mm FUTUREBUS P896 Interface. Features include fully shielded/grounded individual signal pins on 2.0mm x 2.0mm footprint; and no soldering is required to attach connector to printed circuit board, as the male and right angle female connectors incorporate compression surface mount for ground connections and press-fit technology for signal contacts. These connectors are designed to be installed after all surface mount components have been placed on the printed circuit board.

"Convergent Connector Technology" compresses components drastically by integrating various new manufacturing technologies that were not previously available or used in current connector designs. Performance (depending on application) of the five row, sixty pin connector is predicted to be up to 3 GHz. Total installed cost of the FX-2c high performance connector will be lower than existing large, bulky, coaxial connector designs. This connector system is anticipated to take high speed interconnect technology into the 21st Century and beyond.
