The TMM Series of quad-row 2-mm headers interface with the SQT and ESQT Series of standard and elevated 2-mm socket strips. Available in both right-angle and straight-pin versions, this 2-mm terminal strip is available with up to 50 pins per row for densities as high as 200 I/Os in less than 900 sq mm when mounted at the edge of the board. The through-hole terminal is Phosphor Bronze with a black liquid crystal polymer insulator for high-temperature reflow soldering in mixed-technology applications.
