Mill-Max Mfg. Corp. (Oyster Bay, NY) has added right angle options to its line of .070" pitch connectors. These single-row right-angle sockets and headers can be combined with vertical .070" pitch connectors for a variety of interconnect configurations. Additionally, the .070" pitch spacing allows for higher density packaging than .100" pitch, while providing the same current carrying capacity and mechanical strength. They are suitable for board edge daisy chain applications or to mix and match with vertical sockets and headers to mate boards perpendicular to each other. The 871 series right angle sockets are designed to accept device leads as well as mate with the 870 header series. These sockets allow for versatility in orientation of display and imaging chips built on the Shrink DIP platform. Another feature of the 870 & 871 series interconnects is that they provide a low profile above board height of just .104".
