3M 450 Series Wire-to-Board System
3M's new 450 Series is a complete end-to-end interconnect system intended for wire-to-board applications using .025" flat ribbon cable. It is a two part system consisting of a boardmount header and a wiremount socket. The mating components are designed on a 1.27mm or .050" grid. When compared to systems based on the 2.54mm (.100") or 2.00mm grids the finer pitch saves valuable space on the printed circuit board, yet still delivers on performance, reliability and cost savings.
