Continuous loads of up to 20A and peaks >40A are not uncommon and clearly show the growing user profile.
The “hot-plug” and “always-on” requirements have also been part of OEMs’ specifications for some time.
Yamaichi has developed an interface for this called Y- CCC, standing for Yamaichi-Car-Computer-Connector.
With this hybrid connector, it is possible to accommodate the requirements for power, signals and high-speed data in one receptacle size and to transmit them accordingly.
In order to meet the high demands of the automotive industry (vibration / shock etc.), the materials and the design were laid out and internally tested according to the common automotive standards such as LV214 and VDA.
The current configuration of the Y-CCC connector system is as follows:
• 56 signal contacts
• 48 differential pairs for high-speed transmission up to PCIe 4.0
• 8 power contacts up to 20A
• TH reflow solder version
• Screw mounting of the backplane connector
