Hirose has launched what it is saying is the world’s lowest profile Nano SIM card connector. The KP13B Nano SIM card connector reduces the required printed circuit board (PCB) mounting space by up to 26% compared to other products on the market. The space-savings connector simplifies designs in digital cameras, digital video cameras, laptops, printers, smart phones, televisions and more.
The connector has a card detection feature and is designed to prevent incorrect card insertion. This ensures proper mating and protect contacts from damage. The user-friendly card connector is easy to insert/eject and offers 5,000 mating cycles. An exposed terminal design simplifies examination of the connector contacts via automated optical inspection.
“To meet the demands of consumer electronic customers, Hirose continues to push the envelope by developing the lowest profile Nano SIM card connectors available on the market,” said Bill Kysiak, Product Marketing Manager for Hirose Electric USA. “Although small in size, the miniature KP13 Series offers the same quality and reliability customers have come to expect from Hirose products.”
The push-push KP13B Series is only 13.6 mm long, 11.5 mm wide and 1.18 mm high.
The KP13B Series has an operating temperature range of -30° to 85° C, a rated current of 0.5 A and a rated voltage of 10 V.
