Stacking Height of 0.9 mm Gold Plated Contacts Resistant to Shock and Vibration
Omron Electronic Components LLC announces its series of 0.4 mm (0.016 inches) pitch SMD board-to-FPC plug and socket connectors. When mated, they have a stacking height of just 0.9 mm (0.035 inches) and a width of 4.1 mm (0.161 inches) or 5.0 mm (0.20 inches), including the solder terminals. They feature XB4A (plug) and XB4B (socket) connectors with double contact point gold plated contacts that are resistant to Kojiri (improper contact alignment). There is a nickel barrier between the contacts and PCB terminals, preventing solder creepage. The plug and socket mate easily with molded guides that lead the housing to the exact mating position. An audible, firm, tactile click confirms that the connection is fully seated, enabling a high retention force which makes them resistant to shock and vibration.
