FCI adds options to PiP header

FCI has expanded its FCI BASICS+ range of commodity connectors with two versions of its Quickie Shrouded Pin Headers for cable-to-board applications. Both are specially designed for Pin-in-Paste (PiP) soldering, which allow through-mount connectors to be attached using surface-mount soldering processes.

The Quickie PiP header body uses high-temperature thermoplastic to ensure compatibility with Pb-free soldering temperatures, and the housing design is adapted to optimise the flow of solder paste during soldering. Solder tail lengths are reduced to avoid the risk of pushing solder paste out of the PCB through holes during connection. Connectors can be supplied either in tubes or on tape-and-reel packaging to support automated pick-and-place during board assembly. The headers feature a 4-wall shroud and mate with Quickie insulation displacement connection (IDC) or Dubox crimp-to-wire (CTW) receptacles.

FCI has tested the Quickie PiP connector and offers full application support including stencil design, paste application and board layout recommendations.

The FCI BASICS+ service program encompasses industry-standard 2.54mm and 2mm pitch connectors for board-to-board, wire-to-board and cable-to-board applications.

Prices for Quickie PiP headers vary depending on the number of contacts, but average pricing is 1.75 cents per contact in quantities of 50,000.
