Low Profile Board-to-Board and Flex Cable-to-Board SMT Connectors

Robust, Low Profile SMT Connectors: Mezza-pede® 1.0mm pitch SMT Connectors from Advanced Interconnections

Mezza-pede® 1.0mm pitch SMT Connectors from Advanced are designed for low profile board-to-board or flex cable-to-board applications where long-term reliability and a compact size are required.

Ask about their NEW lower profile designs with a mated height of only 2.92mm!

With Advanced’s enclosed screw-machined socket, 6-finger contact and heavy gold plating, Mezza-pede® Connectors pass the 20-day mixed flowing gas (MFG) test required in many telecom and other severe environment and long-life applications.

Their over-molded lead frame seals the surface mount leads to prevent solder wicking, ensuring a secure solder joint. The low stack height makes it ideal for tight mezzanine packaging applications.

Typical Applications

  • Tunable Laser power connector (flex cable to board)
  • Tunable Laser connector (board to board)
  • Signal connector (flex cable to board)
  • Low profile board to board connector


  • Low profile – board to board stack height (z-axis) options ranging from 2.9mm to 4.0mm (nom.).
  • Robust design features screw-machined terminals and multi-finger contacts with a per contact current rating of greater than 1 Amp at 80°C ambient.
  • Dual row configurations include 8, 14, 20, 30, or 36 total positions with other pin counts available on a customized basis.
  • Fits within existing board layouts.
  • Unique SMT lead frame and pin design prevents solder wicking, providing the highest quality solder joint at the PCB level.
  • SMT and thru-hole designs available.
  • Passed 20-Day MFG test with heavy gold terminal plating (GH).
  • Qualified for use in telecommunications applications.
  • RoHS Compliant

How it Works


Thru-hole Flex Cable Applications

Thru hole Flex Cable Application
  • The male terminals are supplied in a polyimide film carrier to facilitate handling (model DHA).
  • A stiffener with a recommended thickness of .020 inches (0.51mm) should be used between the terminal pins and the flex circuit. (Stiffener not supplied)
  • The recommended maximum hole in the stiffener is .018″ diameter.
  • The flex circuit should have a minimum diameter plated through hole of .016″. Standard practices for flex circuit thru-hole and annular rings should apply.
  • An FR-4 cover can be used to protect the top solder joints if required. (not supplied)

SMT Board to Board Applications

SMT Board to Board Application
  • In an SMT application, the SMT socket (DHS or DHSL) and header (DHA, DHAM, or DHAL) can be used on PC boards, rigid flex or flex circuits.
  • SMT pad size should meet IPC standards for surface mount components.
  • See lead dimension and foot size on applicable CAD drawing for reference.
  • Tape and reel packaging is provided for SMT assembly.
