Will a New Generation Form Factor become a new standard?

Connectors M.2 also called as NGFF have a chance to become a widely used standard in computers, communication equipment and M2M applications.

This is an archive article published 05/14/2014. Some information may no longer be up to date and in line with the current state. Please contact us in case of interest.

The newest member of the data connectors family in our offer are connectors Attend series 123, so called NGFF - New Generation Form Factor connectors, also known as „M.2“. Their main advantage is implementation of PCI Express 3.0, Serial ATA 3.0 and USB 3.0. buses into one connector. The connector is considerable miniaturized and at the length of only 21.8 mm it has up to 75 pins ( 0.5mm pitch/ 50V/0,5A). M.2/ NGFF are designed as a future standard for SSD memory media, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS/GNSS, NFC and other modules. As it´s not a “specialty” of one producer but it´s a connector designed as an international standard, their usage in your device can be advantageous thanks to a supposed easy availability even in the future. An important fact is, that connectors are produced with various keying (A-M). That provides a possibility to differentiate various modules on one board and prevents improper connection (PCIe x2, PCIe x4,...).

M.2 connectors are designed for a direct insertion of PCB, i.e. one part of a connection (M) is a PCB and another part is the connector (F). Connectors support various PCB widths - 12, 16, 22 and 30 mm. Depending on a type, M.2 connectors also enable a double-sided assembly of components on a PCB.

Another novelties from the Attend production in our stock are interesting types for SIM cards, as well as combinations 2xSIM(115L-AB380), 2XSIM + uSD (115M-AB360) and other, which can be found below this article.
