Discover new opportunities withTE Connectivity’s Free Height (FH) board-to-board connectors and save more than 50% board space compared to conventional 1.27mm centerline connectors.

FH connectors provide a range of position sizes from 40 to 440 positions in contact centerlines of 0.5, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0mm. By mating various combinations of vertical plug and receptacle housings, board-to-board stack heights from 4 to 20mm can be achieved in 1mm increments to meet today’s electronic industry requirements for high density packaging.
