SAS and SATA connectors enable port selection in hard disk drive carriers

FCI has developed a line of 29-position Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) plug and receptacle connectors, and 22-position Serial ATA (SATA) receptacle connectors for port selector assemblies in removable hard disk drive (HDD) carriers used in enterprise servers and storage systems. Options for vertical or right angle connector terminations are available, which allow engineers to tailor the orientation of the internal PC-board to best fit the drive’s form factor.
