Molex rolls microminiature board-to-board connectors
Molex Inc. has released its latest SMT microminiature board-to-board connectors featuring an ultra-low profile (0.35mm pitch) and compact size (0.60mm height x 2mm width, when mated). According to the company, the SlimStack SSB6 connectors are intended to save space in the compact packaging of smartphones and other portable mobile devices, as well as various surgical, therapeutic and monitoring medical devices.
The SlimStack SSB6 connectors (plug and receptacle) incorporate several innovative design features that help to ensure high connector performance and reliability, even when mobile devices are dropped or subjected to shock or vibration.
The connectors feature wide mating-alignment housing lead-in areas to facilitate fast, easy alignment and mating without risking connector damage due to forced mating; strong audible/tactile click to provide extra assurance of successful mating; and dual-contact design to provide secure electrical and mechanical contact and prevent open contacts.
In addition, the SlimStack SSB6 connectors boast wipe length of 0.13mm to help remove dust and debris, providing further contact assurance; housing canopy cover to provide an anti-zippering barrier that prevents contact pullout from angled unmating; and wide vacuum pick-and-place area to accommodates automatic board placement, even with narrow width.
