Slim Stack Microminiature

Microminiature High-Speed Stacking Connectors
Molex has the widest range of microminiature board-to-board stacking
solutions in the market. The SlimStack™ product family can achieve signal
speeds up to 20Gbps+ for applications and markets that require faster speeds
and good data integrity.

Excellent Signal Integrity Performance
Engineers today are looking for the connector that gives best electrical signal
integrity performance data as it relates to: 1) insertion loss, 2) return loss 3)
impedance and 4) cross talk. SlimStack high-speed connectors achieve less
than the industry accepted -3dB insertion loss and connectors perform at
-0.5dB at the 20 Gbps speeds.

Good Mechanical and Electrical Reliability
• Housing fitting nails
• End wall cover nails
• Bottom stitch design
• Dual contact
• Stable contact resistance
• Low loses

Proven Leader in the Market
SlimStack Microminiature Connectors have been used in the electronics
market for more than 20 years and are a known leader in microminiature
solutions. Available in 0.35, 0.40, 0.50 and 0.635mm pitch, SlimStack can
support your needs to transmit high-speed data signals for many of the latest
industry standards such as SATA, USB, MiPi, PCIe, HDMI, and the newest
