CandK - DIP SwitchC&K Components has developed an ultra-miniature, surface-mount DIP switch that delivers consistent electrical performance and high reliability. The half-pitch TDA Series DIP switch features bifurcated contacts that provide increased electrical reliability when compared to other contact technologies. In addition, the switches are process-sealed for both surface-mount soldering and washable-processing, making them ideal for hand-held electronics devices, portable computer devices, and instrumentations and controls.

“C&K has made the investment to enhance and expand our DIP switch product offering, delivering new switch features and options that provide design engineers with flexibility when specifying a DIP switch for a particular design,” said Owen Camden, business development manager at C&K Components.

The RoHS-compliant TDA Series is available in two termination styles, S-termination (Gullwing) and J-termination (Bend). The single pole, single throw (SPST) DIP switch is available in multiple positions, including 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 positions. The TDA Series DIP switch features a contact rating of 24 V DC, 25 mA (switching state) and 50 V DC, 100 mA (steady state). The TDA Series DIP switch provides a maximum contact resistance of 100m?. Operating temperature ranges from -40ºC to +85ºC. The TDA Series switches are available in tape and reel or tube packaging.
