Lowest stack height connector at 1.5mm

Lowest stack height connector at 1.5mmSteve Bush Japanese connector maker JAE has introduced a connector with a 1.5mm stack height and an 0.5mm pin pitch. “Ibelieve it has the lowest stack height in the industry,” said company sales manager Ian Lester. Engagement length of the wiping contacts is 0.65mm and the connector can absorb 0.25mm X and Y misalignment board to board applications. The connector inserts are moulded into the connector body rather than being pressed in after the insulator is formed.
“Insert moulding is the key to good pin coplanarity, it is the way to go for connectors under 2.5mm stack height.” said Lester.
