HiLo Interconnect

Maximum Flexibility & Quick Time to Market

HiLo Interconnect by Molex ISI provides system designers the ability to create custom board to board, or module to socket interconnect solutions in a variety of configurations, stack heights, pitches and pin counts.  The revolutionary HiLo is created out of standard materials and processes, which allows for the design, prototype and production of a custom high-density interconnect solutions in a very short time period. HiLo custom configurations enable designers to realize maximum flexibility to optimize PCB layout and component placement and simplify their designs. Download HiLo connector overview

FlexFrame Interconnect

FlexFrame Interconnect is a module-level interconnect technology that enables multi-component modules to be placed on printed circuit boards to act as an adapter to apply the same process as a standard leadframe package. FlexFrame Interconnect is available with a wide range of pin locations, pitches, and standoff heights. Flexibility is also enhanced by windows that enable components to be placed in the center of a module.

FlexFrame adapters utilize phosphor-bronze pins that are arrayed in a carrier and formed to emulate gullwing or J-leads. Carriers are constructed of laminates with coefficients of thermal expansion compatible with host PCBs.

ISI provides 100% automated optical inspection of FlexFrame leads for position, flatness and coplanarity per JEDEC specifications. These adapters are shipped in tape and reel packaging ready for placement using standard SMT equipment.

These rugged interconnects have been qualified for use in high-reliability military, aerospace, telecom, networking, server, and industrial applications.
