450 Series Browse Inventory

This compact cable-to-board interconnect solution helps designers meet the ever-increasing demand for high-density equipment. The small, robust socket and header mate together connecting .025” pitch ribbon cables to printed circuit boards (PCBs). A variety of .025” pitch ribbon cables are also available from 3M, forming a complete, end-to-end system of header, socket and cable. The compact header and socket help achieve high-performance electronic equipment designs in a small form factor as required by today’s communications, military/aerospace, industrial production, data center and high-performance computing applications. The fine, .050” pitch saves space on the PCB, allowing for high connection density. The 450 series  also delivers performance, reliability and cost savings.
