ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed a connector that is said to improve signal transmission and reception in wireless handheld devices. The Perfect Wireless Interconnect features a 300k psi domed interconnect contact with a minimum force of 0.5 N and deflection of 0.6 mm, holding true signal integrity through the antenna and experiencing no field failures. Available in beryllium copper (BeCu) or titanium copper (TiCu), the interconnect also features side-walls to provide beam protection and a solder well to prevent wicking. It is specified for use as a SIM, speaker/vibrator, microphone, battery or board-to-board contact in a large number of handheld wireless applications, including handsets, smart phones, laptop computers, memory sticks, CT scanning equipment, key fobs and GPS units. Typical pricing for the Perfect Wireless Interconnect ranges from $0.075 to $0.115 each.
