Molex Incorporated continues to be a leader in the Solid State Lighting (SSL) interconnect field with the addition of its Plastic Substrate Interconnect (PSI) for LED Chip-on-Board (COB) Arrays. These customizable interconnects feature a low-profile harness interface that delivers power to the array through a simple and reliable connection to a holder, or plastic substrate.

Molex introduces the Pico-EZmate Slim 1.2mm Pitch Wire-to-Board Connector, designed to provide reliable connection in a ...

With a low overall package height of ~2.00mm, Molex PSI provides a slim design for space-limited applications while minimizing substrate costs. By employing the Pico-EZmate™ harness system, the solution integrates the electrical and mechanical features with the array for a simple, solderless connection.

The PSI system is ideal for high-density and high-light output applications such as downlighting (track, pendants and linear) and area lighting (roadways, parking lots and wall packs). LED Chip-on-Board technology ensures strong future development capabilities by allowing integration of additional components.

The solderless Pico-EZmate harness attaches to the LED array holder with no special processes or tools for an efficient connection that minimizes contact with the array to reduce the risk of damage. The vertical snap-to-mate connection, positive-lock latching feature and gold plated contacts deliver superior reliability. The harnesses will be offered in three wire gauge configurations and various lengths for a range of initial harness options based on application need.

In addition to the integrated Pico-EZmate solution, Molex offers a wide variety of low-profile header and receptacle systems that can be integrated into a custom PSI depending on the application.

Features:

- Circular: 22.50 by 22.50mm COB size; 36.00mm outer diameter and 2.0mm height profile

- Rectangular: 22.50 by 22.50mm COB size; 36.50 by 28.50mm outer dimension and 2.00mm height profile

- Customizable shapes, sizes, mounting hole patterns and interconnects
