M12 SMT circular connectors for rapid assembly
The M12 SMT connector will be available in codes A, D and X in male and female versions. This move will bring both power and Ethernet at up to 10 Gbit/s to the PCB via new miniaturised switches. The benefits of this approach are the automated, rapid and more cost-effective placement of the connection, since dispensing with through-hole contacts means that the board can now be populated on both sides.
