This standard (PICMG 3.0) is one of the latest standards addressing future telecommunications needs. The AdvancedTCA Power Connector, designated for use in Zone 1 per PICMG 3.0, combines 8 High Conductivity Size 16 pin & socket contacts along with 22 Size 22 pin & socket contacts, plus guidance into a compact interface. Both connector halves feature proven compliant press-fit contacts for easy solder-less termination to printed circuit boards.
