The M.2 connectors are designed for mobile devices, primarily laptops, requiring a high-speed interface to communicate with expansion cards (e.g. Wi-Fi modules). The standard is compatible with PCI Express (from version 4.0), Serial ATA (from version 3.0, as the successor to mSATA) and USB (from version 3.0). With the SSD (solid-state storage) miniaturization and the growing popularity of compact single board computers and circuits based on miniaturized microprocessor systems, M.2 connectors are being used more and more not only in computers, but also data aggregation devices, mobile consumer equipment and industrial applications.
TME customers interested in using M.2 modules in their products and projects can take advantage of the new offer from Attend. The abovementioned products are surface-mount (SMD) NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) connectors. M.2 was originally referred to as the Next Generation Form Factor” Our catalogue includes various models (A, B, E, and M key). Gold-plated contacts are designed for currents of up to 500mA – this is an important parameter, as these connectors are used, among others, to supply power to the connected modules. Depending on the model, their height ranges from 2.1mm to 8.5mm.
