AVX Corp. (Myrtle Beach, SC), a manufacturer and supplier of passive electronic components and related products, unveiled the newest addition to its family of SMT battery connectors, the 9155 Series, designed with an ultra-low profile for mobile applications. The 9155 Series connectors feature a contact beam static height of 2.45 mm. Typical applications include mobile phones, PDAs, and industrial systems.
The initial ultra-low profile connector is available in three contact positions and spaced on 2.5 mm centers. Once fully deflected, the compressed height reduces to 1.3 mm above the board. All contacts are stamped and rated to 3 A, providing high durability and high tolerance absorption features that are derived from a beryllium copper base material and a stable contact beam design.
The 9155 Series connectors are supplied in tape and reel for automatic placement, and feature gold-plated contacts for increased durability and high-temperature insulator material for compatibility with either convection or IR reflow soldering processes. Pricing for the SMT Battery Connector is approximately $0.50 each in quantities of 10,000 pieces. Delivery time is approximately 8 to 10 weeks.
